Extradition Hearings(602) 222-3440

As a former prosecutor and judge, Robert J. Campos has the proven experience to protect your rights should you or a loved one be arrested on a Fugitive of Justice Warrant.

If you are arrested and are wanted on charges in another state, the state that is seeking to prosecute you may have you arrested on a warrant and detained by the State of Arizona. The hearing to determine if you should be detained and sent to the state that is seeking to prosecute you is called an Extradition Hearing or a Fugitive of Justice Hearing.

The Hearing is a civil hearing. Therefore you are not entitled to have an appointed lawyer. The State of Arizona will NOT give you an attorney to help you understand your rights or to protect your freedom. You must therefore hire a private lawyer to assist you. The Firm of Robert J. Campos & Associates, P.L.C. has 24 years of experience in handling Extradition or Fugitive of Justice Hearings.

You have certain rights that an experienced lawyer may assert on your behalf. For instance:

  1. You may have the right to post a bond and be released.
  2. You have the right to have your lawyer file a Writ of Habeas Corpus – meaning that you are being illegally detained. By filing a Writ of Habeas Corpus, the court must quickly set a hearing to determine if you are wrongly being denied your freedom.
  3. You have the right to challenge your arrest. The state that is seeking to prosecute you must obtain what is called a “Governor’s Warrant” establishing that you are the person that committed a crime, that you probably committed the crime, and that you fled from the state seeking to prosecute you. Generally, the state seeking to bring you back has 90 days to do so.
  4. Most importantly, a lawyer can advise you on how to proceed and whether or not to challenge your arrest and detention.

You or a loved one may also be arrested in another state and the State of Arizona may be seeking to have you or a loved one Extradited back to Arizona to face charges in Arizona. The Firm of Robert J. Campos & Associates, P.L.C. has successfully helped many clients in this situation. Do not waste time in jail. Call for an immediate free consultation and protect your rights.
