Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the roles of various United States authorities in obtaining the extradition or other rendition of fugitives sought by the United States for prosecution or service of sentence. The initiative in every extradition case rests with the federal or state prosecutor responsible for the underlying case. Unless a prosecutor contacts the Department of Justice to discuss the possibility of obtaining a person's extradition, the extradition process will never be set in motion. Although extradition pursuant to treaty is the generally accepted international legal process by which one country obtains custody of a person from another country for prosecution or service of sentence, there are several alternative methods by which the United States either has obtained custody of such a person or has succeeded in having him prosecuted in the country in which he is located for the same acts for which the United States charges where brought.
