Michigan Governor Granholm asks States to Return Child Support Violators for Prosecution

Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm is asking authorities outside Michigan to return more than 100 people to that state to face charges of failing to pay child support. One of the latest is a man  now in custody in Virginia who owes more than $26,700 in child support dating back to 1983. If he is returned to Michigan and is convicted as charged, he faces up to four years in prison and will have to make good on the unpaid support. The power to demand extradition of a fugitive who has fled from Michigan and taken refuge in another state is vested in the governor, according to the Uniform Criminal Extradition Act. Officials outside Michigan can issue a warrant delivering the fugitive to the custody of authorities in Michigan. Source. WDIV TV, Detroit, clickondetroit.com.
