Respondent _______________________ is the Warden of the____________ County Correctional Facility/Prison.3.

As he has a constitutional right to speak in his own words, on paper. Farretta vs. California, 422 U.S. 806, (1975).The pro se litigant is not held to the same stringent standards as licensed attorneys, as long as the court can reasonably read the pleadings and use common sense in the relief being sought, despite failure to cite proper legal authority, poor syntax and sentence construction, confusion of legal theories, and unfamiliarity with pleading requirements. Haines vs. Kerner, 404 U.S. 519, 92 S.Ct. 594, 30 L.Ed.2d 652 (1972); Boag vs. MacDougall, 454 U.S. 364, 102 S.Ct. 700, 70 L.Ed.2d 551 (1982).Pro se petitioners--In determining whether such relief should be granted on their pleadings regarding their claims, the Court held that: "we are governed by the substance of things, not by mere form". Louisville & N.R. Co. vs. Schmidt, 177 U.S. 230 (1899).This Court has a duty to entertain the Petitioners pro se pleadings looking at the substance and not the labels, mere form, put on them (pleadings). Furthermore, the courts are not bound by the labels put on the pleading, nor the caption of the pleading or prayer, but by the substance, Benson vs. Sales Corp., 238 Cal.2d Supp. 937, 48 Cal. Rptr. 123.Pro se filings are held to a less stringent procedural standards than others, see, Nunnally vs. MacClausland, 996 F.2d 1 (1st Cir. 1993).There is obligation to construe pleadings liberally and to afford plaintiff (Defendant) benefit of any doubt in civil rights cases, where plaintiff is pro se, also, pro se pleadings are to held to a less stringent standard than pleadings drafted by attorneys, see, Balisteri vs. Pacifica Police Dept., 901 F.2d 696 (9th Cir. 1990).Court errs if court dismisses the pleadings of a non-attorney litigant without instruction of how pleadings are deficient and how to repair pleadings, see, Platsky vs. C.I.A., 953 F.2d 26 (2nd. Cir. 1991).All litigants have a constitutionallysecured right to have their claims adjudicated according to the rule of precedent, see, Anastasoff vs. United States, 223 F.3d 898 (2000).Undisputed Facts.Petitioner was captured by the ________________ Police Department for alleged traffic/commerce and or /___________________ violations at or about ________________________ 200____, A.D.The arresting police officer(s) ran a check on the Petitioner and found out by computer information or other means that there was an "alleged warrant" for the Petitioners arrest in another state, the Commonwealth / State of Pennsylvania.The arresting police officer(s) took the Petitioner in custody, immediately, and told his _____friend that he is going to be held on the charge of a fugitive of justice or something to that effect.The arresting police officer(s) did not have a valid and bona fide warrant and or capias in their possession at the time of the arrest, nor do they have a valid or bona fide Governors Warrant for Extradition in their custody or possession.The Petitioner has languished in the _____________ Correctional Facility/Prison, since his arrest on ______________, 200____, A.D., without a formal arraignment and/or an evidentiary hearing, to date.The Petitioner is indigent and without adequate and competent legal counsel.Issue.Is the Petitioner being restrained and held against his will legally and lawfully under the color of state/any law and color of authority, as an alleged fugitive from justice from the State/Commonwealth of Pennsylvania on a valid and bona fide Governors Warrant pursuant to the Uniform Criminal Extradition Act, 42 Pa.C.S.A. §9121 et seq. and the United States Constitution, at Article 4, Section 2, Clause 2, via the Fourteenth Amendment?SUGGESTED ANSWER:In the Negative.Rule.The appropriate Rule of Law in this case as it pertains to Petitioner is the United States Constitution, specifically, Article 4, Sec. 2, Clause 2, via the Fourteenth Amendment which Article 4, Sec. 2, Clause 2 provides:"A person who is charged in any State with Treason, Felony, or other Crime,who shall flee from Justice, and be found in another State, shall on Demandof the Executive Authority of the State from which he fled, be delivered up, tobe removed to the State having Jurisdiction of the Crime." U.S.C.A. Const.Article 4, Sec. 2, Clause 2.Fourteenth Amendment at Section 1, in pertinent part, provides:" ..No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privilegesor immunities of the citizens of the United States; nor shall any state depriveany person of life, liberty, or property without due process of law; nor deny toany person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the law." U.S.C.A. Const.Amend. 14.Pursuant to this provision, Pennsylvania has adopted the Uniform Criminal Extradition Act, 42 Pa.C.S.A. §9121 et seq. Under the provisions of this Act, extradition must be ordered if the person is (1) charged with a crime in the demanding state; (2) is a fugitive from the demanding state; (3) was present in the demanding state at the time the crime was committed; and (4) the requisition papers are in order. Commonwealth vs. Jacobs, 319 Pa. Super. 531, 466 A.2d 671 (1983). The defendant may contest extradition by filing a petition for a writ of habeas corpus, 42 Pa.C.S.A. §9131. At a hearing on the petition, the Commonwealth must establish by a preponderance of the evidence that the person being extradited is the person demanded. Commonwealth vs. Rowe, 264 Pa. Super. 67, 398 A.2d 1060 (1979). Proof by affidavit is permitted. Commonwealth ex rel. Pizzo vs. Aytch, 273 Pa. Super. 55, 416 A.2d 1086 (1979).Application.The demand for extradition must allege that the accused was in the demanding state at the time of the commission of the crime and that he thereafter fled the jurisdiction. In addition, there must be a copy of the indictment, information, or complaint (supported by affidavit) that "substantially charges" a crime, or a copy of a warrant and affidavit showing that the defendant was convicted of a crime in that state and has escaped or violated the terms of probation or parole.Upon the arrest and commitment of a defendant (or the lodging of a detainer) on fugitive charges, the Commonwealth has thirty (30) days in which to produce required papers in court, including the Governors Warrant of arrest (approval of extradition), 42 Pa.C.S.A. §9136. The Commonwealth may apply for one (1) sixty (60)-day extension, 42 Pa.C.S.A. §9138. A defendant who is incarcerated beyond the thirty (30) or ninety (90)-day period has the right to be discharged if the state has failed to act. E.g., Com. ex rel. Knowles vs Lester, 456 Pa. 423, 321 A.2d 637 (1979); Commonwealth vs Hude, 483 Pa. 489, 397 A.2d 772 (1979)(Act applies and time begins to run when detainer is lodged with respect to an open charge from another state). However, a discharge of the defendant for failure to comply with these provisions does not bar re-arrest. Com. ex rel. Holcombe vs. Strode, 266 Pa. Super. 39, 402 A.2d 1067 (1979).If the papers are in order and the Commonwealth proves the necessary elements, the Governor may not refuse to extradite. Puerto Rico vs. Branstad, 483 U.S. 219, 107 S.Ct. 2802, 97 L.Ed.2d 187 (1987). Once the warrant issues, the only issue before the court on an application for habeas corpus is whether the demanding state has complied with the four (4) criteria specified above. The Commonwealth need not show probable cause for the underlying charge, Michigan vs. Doran, 439 U.S. 282, 99 S. Ct. 530, 58 L.Ed.2d 521 (1978); Commonwealth vs. Brown, 281 Pa. Super. 31, 421 A.2d 1131 (1980), and guilt or innocence is not at issue, Com. ex rel. Reis vs. Aytch, 225 Pa. Super. 315, 310 A.2d 681 (1973).PLEASE NOTE:An appeal of the denial of habeas corpus relief on extradition will be rendered moot unless the defendant obtains an immediate stay of the extradition from the trial or appellate court. See, §15.21, supra.Conclusion.Based upon the foregoing reasons, the Writ of Habeas Corpus should issue forthwith and the Petitioner released, immediately.Date:____________________ Respectfully submitted,______________________________Petitioner, In Propria Persona._______________ Correctional Facility________________________ in/for theState of ____________________________________________ : Criminal/Case No. _____________Petitioner/Aggrieved Party,In Propria Persona,vs. : Writ of Habeas CorpusAnother Form_________________________________,Police Commissioner/Chief, for the______________ Police Department,Respondent, : Uniform Criminal Extradition Act.(42 Pa.C.S.A. §9121 et seq.)and ,__________________________________, :Warden, for the ______________ Prison,Respondent.____________________________________PETITION FOR WRIT OF HABEAS CORPUS.____________________________TO THE HONORABLE, THE JUDGES OF THE SAID COURT:Petitioner, ________________________, in his proper person, moves for a writ of habeas corpus, and represents:1. Respondent ______________________is the Police Commissioner/Chief of the ____________________________________ Police Department in the county of ______________, State of __________________________.2. Respondent _______________________ is the Warden of the __________ County Correctional Facility/Prison.3.

The Commonwealth / state has failed to produce the requisite extradition papers in court within the thirty (30)-day period provided for by the Uniform Criminal Extradition Act, 42 Pa.C.S.A. §9236.5. The failure of the Commonwealth / state to proceed in a timely fashion is violative of the Act and entitles Petitioner to a dismissal of the fugitive warrant.WHEREFORE, the Petitioner requests that the Court dismiss the fugitive warrant, grant the writ of habeas corpus, and discharge the Petitioner, forthwith, in the interest of justice, right and equity. Also, that the Honorable Court grant any other relief to the Petitioner it deems just and proper under the circumstances.______________, 200___ Respectfully submitted,______________________________Petitioner, In Propria Persona.______________ Correctional FacilityCertificate of Service.Undersigned Agent-in-Fact does hereby certify that he did in fact cause to be served a true and correct copy of the foregoing instruments Petition for a Writ of Habeas Corpus with Attached Brief in Support on the persons named below in the manner indicated:Via Hand Delivery:Court Administrator ______________Presiding Judge _________________Prosecuting/District Attorneys Office ____________________Warden of the _____________ County Prison _____________Police Commissioner/Chief of the _____________Police Department____________________, 2006"Without Prejudice"_________________________________________________, Sui Juris,Process Server/Agent-in-Fact.
