Christopher (Christian) Colbert’s extradition hearing from California to Texas will be held on April 18 in Los Angeles County Court.
According to a LA County Sheriff’s Department official, Colbert was picked up on a fugitive warrant. He is wanted in Texas for murder as well as identity theft and theft of property changes. The April 18 hearing could send Colbert back to Dallas as soon as Dallas Police can pick him up, or if Colbert decides to fight the extradition, a later hearing date will be held.
The sheriff’s department official said that when police pick someone up on a fugitive warrant, extradition to another state is inevitable. She didn’t have a list of charges against him and said California has no interest in holding him. His return to Texas is simply a matter of time.
