Facing an Extradition Request?
Know Your Rights - Call Our New York Extradition Defense Lawyer
When extradition occurs, it means that one entity is trying to hand over an alleged criminal to another state, country, or authority. An individual who is arrested for a crime automatically gets their data entered into an international data base. If it appears that the individual has committed a crime in another state or country and fled, that state or country can request extradition from the state that is holding the alleged criminal.
If you're facing an extradition request, you should be aware of your charges and know that you have the right to legal counsel. At H. Benjamin Perez & Associates, P.C., our New York City criminal defense lawyers can offer the representation you need.
