Will a FTA warrant for felony drug possession show up on live scan from 4000 miles away and what is the statute of limitations for a drug possession warrant?

This would depend on whether the court or law enforcement agency holding the warrant entered it into NCIC, which contains the national wanted persons index. If they did, and your fingerprints are on file with that court or agency, then yes, a live scan of your fingerprints is going to reveal the existence of the warrant. Whether or not you are arrested immediately depends on whether the court or LE agency holding the warrant wants you badly enough to send someone to bring you back.

Arrest warrants are valid until served or recalled. There is no "statute of limitations" on a warrant.

How long can a courtesy hold for extradition last?

Not familiar with the term "courtesy" hold. If you are held for extradition as a fugitive from another state, there is no "courtesy" about it. It's simply "the law."

**********

"Courtesy hold" is a common term to those familiar with the law. It means that a person is being held as a courtesy to an agency in another jurisdiction. This is common for example with the US Marshals when they arrest a person in one jurisdiction and have them held in a local jail until they can be transported. The exact length of time varies from one state to the next, but it is normally 7 - 10 days (enough time to arrange extradition paperwork and transportation).

How long can extradition take from one state to another?

If the person is being held for extradition. once the process has begun it takes as long as it takes. It is nowhere near as easy as simply driving over the state line and picking them up. A formal inter-state legal and administrative process must be begun and followed in order to legally take custody of the defendant and remove them from one state to another. If you haven't heard anything in 30 days file a Writ of Habeus Corpus to determine where the process stands.

Where to go to escape felony charges?

In the US - there are no "sanctuary' states. All states and territories honor each other's requests for extradition. Additionally, most (not all, but most) foreign countries have reciprocal extradition agreements with the US. Probably the only countries that don't.....you wouldn't want to go there.

How long does it take to get extradited?

It takes as long as it takes. The state that wishes to extradite you has to complete and submit administrative and legal paperwork to the state that arrested you in order to legally bring you back. The process goes faster if you waive extradition, and slower if you fight it. If you are still being held after 30 days file a writ a Habeus Corpus.

What states extradite bench warrants to Kansas?

It depends on the warrant. Every police agency, and plus the warrants themselves have conditions. Normally it must be a pretty serious crime for a police agency to be willing to extradite out of state arrest warrants.

Does roratonga have an extradition treaty with the us?

Rorotanga is part of the Cook Islands which are an independent, self-governing group of islands located in the South Pacific. It is the the largest island in the group, and the one on which the capital city is located.

It appears that, even though they are 'self-governing,' the Cook Islands are a sub-division, or protectorate, of New Zealand -- and have much the same relationship with New Zealand that Singapore and Hong Kong have with The People's Republic of China. From that association it can be deduced that since New Zealand has extradition treaties with the US, in all likelihood, the Cook Islands DO also.

I believe that the only restriction would be (like most British Commonwealth nations) they will not allow extradition back to the US to face a death penalty.

What are the extradition laws between the states within the United States?

It depends on the charge and location where you are now and where the state that the warrant was issued. Some charges, if pulled over, etc in one state... and they run your license and it pulls up the warrant, they would go ahead and arrest you, but they then would contact the agency that issued the warrant. It then depends if that state "wanted" you or if they were not going to pursue the matter (i.e. cost them more to extradite/have a hearing than original charge). This isn't likely, but sometimes they do not worry about extradition. Either way, once arrested, the agency issuing the warrant must pick you up within 30 days, or you will be released. It all depends on the charge, whether it was state or federal (federal... automatic extradition), and the state which crime occurred and your current state. More information is at 18 U.S.C. § 3182.
