What is the name of your state?What is the name of your state? NEW YORK
I am a resident here for the last year, voted here this month etc.
There exists a warrant (I saw it online) for my arrest for probation violation. I had a misdemeanor DUI conviction 10 months ago in Georgia. Did about a month, and then moved back home to NYC, on probation with my P.O.'s knowledge.
I was only able to pay about 5 months of fines due to unemployment and I fell behind. Thus, the warrant (also I am a little behind on community service and some other terms)
Question to people/offenders that would KNOW. (no smart asses, please)
If I am stopped for something, I know I'm going to Rikers Island. The question is, will that county's Sheriffs Department or the Interstate Compact send someone to bring me back to Georgia??
If I am in jail waiting a few weeks for return, is this time creditable to my probation violation? (I expect to get 4-6 months, because I can't pay.)
Since I have been already convicted of this crime, do extradition rules apply? NY has to hand over one of its residents, no questions asked??
Thanks for your help....respond directly to my email if you have some particularly useful advice.
