Ryan Lochte and International Extradition 101

Ryan Lochte has been front and center in the news this past week, and not for his achievements at the Rio Olympics.  Unfortunately, he has learned that social media and statements made exaggerating what occurred has made things quite complicated for Mr. Lochte.  Speedo has ended their almost decade long relationship and Mr. Lochte has lost other endorsement deals over what occurred, and its aftermath.

Domestic and International Extradition

Extradition is defined as the surrender of a person by a State to another State for prosecution or punishment.  States usually will work with one another to extradite individuals facing serious charges.  For example, if a person is facing a murder arrest warrant in NY and is arrested in Georgia for an unrelated charge, then NY will request GA to extradite that individual to face the charges in NY.  An attorney in GA can help the client decide whether or not to fight extradition and a lawyer in NY can help the client face the murder charges.  Conaway & Strickler, PC, fortunately, is licensed to practice in both NY and GA and would be able to advise the client on both ends.
