Miami International Extradition Attorneys
Fighting for Your Rights, Freedom & Best Interests
If you are in another country, a criminal investigation occurring in the United States may not concern you as much as it should – that is, until you learn that law enforcement in the U.S is seeking to extradite you from your current country so that you can stand trial for the suspected crimes. If this happens, it is imperative that you are represented by a highly experienced Miami international extradition attorney who knows how to protect your rights and obtain the most favorable outcome possible in your situation.
In many cases, if the country in which you are residing is cooperating with the United States regarding the extradition, you may be arrested and may spend a substantial amount of time in jail in that country before extradition ever occurs. Once the extradition process begins, it can involve a significant amount of paperwork, man-hours by busy prosecutors, and additional complications that can delay the process. While you do not necessarily want months or years of your life wasted waiting for extradition to occur, an attorney who is actively representing you can make the most of this time to determine the best course of action in your case.
Gathering Evidence & Information
If your extradition is delayed, your attorney can engage in intense discovery of the case and evidence that is potentially against you.
Questions that arise will include:
- Who are the prosecutors and in which jurisdiction are they bringing your case?
- What specific charges will you face?
- Are you a major target in the criminal scheme (e.g. drug trafficking operation) or a secondary player?
- Are there any co-defendants and are they in custody?
- Were any federal investigative agencies involved in building the case against you?
- Did investigations involve informants, undercover operations, wiretaps, or other evidence-gathering methods?
- Did law enforcement violate any U.S. laws such as performing illegal searches or engaging in entrapment?
This is only some of the information your attorney can seek out while you wait for extradition. In addition, your attorney will ensure that all requirements are met for extradition and will identify if any procedural defects can help to avoid extradition.
