Let us say there is an offence Z that is punishable with a fine of upto $500000 in state 1 of the United States of America and the accused(who is accused with the crime Z) flees to stateb 2where the act Z is perfectly legal can State 1 successfuly punish the person who does crime Z meaning is intrastate extradiction possible?What if federal laws says nothing about it (Z) is it still punishable?
Let’s say there is an offence Z. A person commits that offence in state 1, which gives a $500000 fine for it, and then flees to state 2 which explicitly says Z is not a crime.
Federal law does not a speak on it. Will the criminal still be fined?
At half a million I would expect it is qualifies as "felony or other crime" - the U.S. Constitution (Article IV Section 2) requires that:
A person charged in any State with Treason, Felony, or other Crime, who shall flee from Justice, and be found in another State, shall on Demand of the executive Authority of the State from which he fled, be delivered up, to be removed to the State having Jurisdiction of the Crime.
