They are quite unlikely to extradite you for a misdemeanor. It takes a lot of money to transport you back to New York State. They're not wasting money on lower-level offenders. If you ever show up in New York State, they will haul you in and lock you up...
The best thing to do is not get caught. If you're arrested in New York City, make sure you have a good criminal defense attorney present before you say anything to police. You may want to consider getting out of town until this whole thing dies down.
If you don't want to be deported, don't commit a felony in New York State.
For a misdemeanor, you will not be extradited across state lines. Just be aware that the warrant will not simply disappear, so if you return to Minnesota, you may be arrested, etc.
Yes, you can be extradited for a minor offense. I know a retired officer who made money hauling individuals back into our state because they had outstanding warrants. The PD developed a ruse where they would send him out to bring back a severe criminal plus one guy on a simple warrant.
In New York State, a criminal conviction, such as a misdemeanor, remains on your record in perpetuity. Convictions in New York cannot be expunged. However, some convictions may be eligible for relief under specific circumstances. For example, certain crimes may be cleared from your record if you are convicted of a lesser crime or find "reasonable excuse" for your original offense.
When you apply for jobs, the employer will use this information when considering whether to hire you. If you can prove that you have been rehabilitated and are not a risk to public safety, many employers will honor requests to be removed from their records. You can also request removal from these databases. However, the laws regarding release from criminal records vary by state and sometimes county, so it is important to know the rules in your area before making any decisions.
Misdemeanors are defined as less serious offenses than felonies. In New York, most misdemeanors can be tried in city or town court. Some examples of misdemeanors include: disobeying a police officer, driving while intoxicated, criminal possession of a weapon, assault, harassment, etc. Misdemeanors can result in penalties such as fines, community service, probation, incarceration, etc.
In contrast to other states, New York does not enable you to expunge your criminal records, which means that the record is fully deleted and the offense and conviction are completely removed from your record. Instead, under some instances, New York enables you to seal some criminal records. A sealed record is one that has been erased or marked so that it cannot be seen by others but still exists on files at the court house. When an arrest is sealed, this does not affect your ability to get jobs or loans.
New York's laws regarding sealing criminal records are found in section 805 of the Criminal Procedure Law. This law allows courts to order records pertaining to arrests that did not result in convictions or charges filed with the district attorney to be sealed. The judge can seal these records at the request of the defendant, who must show that he or she was the victim of racial discrimination or some other arbitrary action. The judge can also order records relating to charges that were dismissed by the district attorney before they went to trial to be sealed if the defendant had a good reason for wanting this record kept private. On top of all this, under certain circumstances such as death of the accused or change of identity, records may be able to be removed from public view.
The decision to grant or deny a motion to seal criminal records is up to the judge and depends on many factors such as the type of crime committed, how old the record is, etc.
All of the charges are misdemeanors. Unless the state of New Jersey wishes to question or arrest you on more serious criminal charges, they will not extradite or even seek to extradite you. However, even if you have been granted bail and cleared of all charges, any other state may still decide to hold you based on a law enforcement agency's request for extradition.
Extradition is the legal process by which one state sends custody of an individual to another state for prosecution or punishment. The federal government has the power to demand extradition under certain circumstances involving terrorism or crime across state lines. Otherwise, extradition is handled between states pursuant to agreements passed down through the executive branch.
The decision to extradite or not is entirely up to the governor of each state. Some governors may agree to send individuals to another state for trial if conditions are right (such as a guarantee from the receiving state that the person will not face execution), but others may choose not to allow this to happen.
In addition to extradition, many states also permit the police to enter your home without a warrant if there is an emergency situation requiring immediate action. Known as "exigent circumstances," this exception allows officers to search your house without first getting approval from a judge.
