Extradition to Tampa, Hillsborough County for Violation of Probation

Individuals can be arrested while out of the state of Florida on a warrant issued within the State of Florida. In many of those case, the person sits in jail while they wait for Florida to send a bus to pick them up and take them back to the county that issued the warrant.

Often individuals sit in jail for 30-90 days while waiting to be extradited. In many of these cases, a criminal defense attorney might be able to convince the judge that issued the warrant in Florida to lift the warrant so the individual can travel back to Florida voluntarily and avoid the expense and inconvenience of extradition. This often benefits both the individual being detained and the State of Florida.

How long does Fl. have to extradite an individual back to Fl. or is there NO time limit? Once the individual is arrested on the warrant out of Fl. how long can Fl. leave them sit waiting to be extradited back to Fl. before Fl. looses their right to extradite?
