The Costa Rica Extradition

Written by William Freeman


My name is William Freeman, Jr. In April of 2000 Interpol arrested me at my home in Guadalupe, Costa Rica for charges that stemmed out of Wyoming in 1991. The charges were Conspiracy to Distribute Cocaine. Costa Rican law andrepparttar Costa Rican Constitution do not have a provision for conspiracy laws; therefore, I decided to fightrepparttar 119290 Extradition.I was arraigned in Court and appointed a Public Defender. was advised of my rights under he laws of Extradition and also underrepparttar 119291 Constitution of Costa Rica.I was then transferred to San Sebastian Prison in San Jose, Costa Rica where I was confronted by a group of inmates at knifepoint. They wantedrepparttar 119292 clothes I had brought with me. I refused to relinquish my clothes and sufferedrepparttar 119293 consequences with a broken arm.The unit I was placed in was equipped with 80 beds, yet there were 324 inmates in this unit, most of which were sleeping onrepparttar 119294 floor. I did sleep onrepparttar 119295 floor forrepparttar 119296 first couple of days until I was able to purchase a bed for $200. The prison does not supply you with clothing, dishes, hygiene products or bedding. This, you must have delivered to you fromrepparttar 119297 outside if you, in fact, have someone to do this for you. The prison does not have hot water, nor does it have water for toilets. There were two faucets with cold running water whichrepparttar 119298 inmates used for showers. I made arrangements to have bedding delivered to me, along withrepparttar 119299 many other items I needed, includingrepparttar 119300 delivery of food. Without this outside assistance, I would never have survivedrepparttar 119301 15 months I spent there. The prison unit was dark, filthy, over-crowded and filled with disease, rats, and daily violence that resulted inrepparttar 119302 deaths of other inmates.My public defender was at first very confident that I would winrepparttar 119303 Extradition and be set free. According to her, it was just a formality that I must go through and we must waitrepparttar 119304 formal filing of charges byrepparttar 119305 United States Embassy. She was certain that they would not file these charges in 60-day time period allotted byrepparttar 119306 courts in accordance withrepparttar 119307 Bi-lateral Extradition treaty betweenrepparttar 119308 United States and Costa Rica. Late inrepparttar 119309 afternoon of day 60,repparttar 119310 United States Embassy did filerepparttar 119311 formal charges. I decided that I would continue to fightrepparttar 119312 Extradition torepparttar 119313 United States. For those of you not familiar with Extradition law, you have only three days to appealrepparttar 119314 courtís decision.While I was awaiting a decision fromrepparttar 119315 court, my attorney stopped taking my calls and would not respond to my inquiries. I knew thatrepparttar 119316 court would be rendering a decision at any moment and my attorneyís failure to communicate with me had me quite concerned. It was at this time I decided to write my own appeal for a court decision I had not yet received. I feared thatrepparttar 119317 court would decide against me and allowrepparttar 119318 United States to extradite me and that my attorney was working in conjunction withrepparttar 119319 United States Embassy. I was correct in this assumption, asrepparttar 119320 Court had in fact decided in favor ofrepparttar 119321 United States to extradite me. But because I had anticipated this, I had a friend of mine hand-deliverrepparttar 119322 blanket appeal I had prepared torepparttar 119323 court. This allowed me time to prepare another appeal that would answerrepparttar 119324 courtís decision. Had I not filed my appeal prior to receivingrepparttar 119325 courtís decision,repparttar 119326 time allotted for appeal would have lapsed and I would have been extradited.To my amazement, when I readrepparttar 119327 court decision,repparttar 119328 Judge had taken my one conspiracy charge and made two charges out it to fit a similar charge of distribution of cocaine underrepparttar 119329 laws of Costa Rica. To be extradited from another country, both countries must haverepparttar 119330 same exact law. According torepparttar 119331 laws of Extradition, ifrepparttar 119332 country you are residing in does not have a similar law, then you are not extraditable. Due torepparttar 119333 fact that Costa Rica does not have conspiracy laws, I would not have been found. Therefore,repparttar 119334 judge changed my charge from conspiracy cocaine to distribution of cocaine, now justifying my Extradition, asrepparttar 119335 laws are nowrepparttar 119336 same in both countries.I decided it would be in my best interest to continue studyingrepparttar 119337 law and I made arrangements to haverepparttar 119338 Costa Rican law books purchased for me and delivered torepparttar 119339 prison so that I may study for my defense. I was doing a much better job thanrepparttar 119340 attorney I had and my appeal had been accepted. This allowed me more time to study and submit another appeal. I am fluent in Spanish and this was of great assistance to me in my studies ofrepparttar 119341 law and preparation of legal briefs. Through my studies, I also had studiedrepparttar 119342 conventions that govern Extradition law and I was becoming very knowledgeable in law which related to Extradition,repparttar 119343 Bi-Lateral Treaty, andrepparttar 119344 Constitution of Costa Rica.As I had been preparing everything in Spanish,repparttar 119345 court assumed that I had had legal assistance of some sort. I then learned some very important things that directly related to my case. The first one was that my rights had been violated because allrepparttar 119346 documents I had received to date were in Spanish. Due torepparttar 119347 fact that I am American and my native language is English,repparttar 119348 court violated my rights by not having an interpreter present duringrepparttar 119349 court proceedings and thatrepparttar 119350 documents I had been receiving were not translated into English. I filed an appeal withrepparttar 119351 Tribunal Appeals Court which decided in my favor and hadrepparttar 119352 Extradition proceedings suspended until an interpreter was appointed and allrepparttar 119353 documents were translated and prepared inrepparttar 119354 English language. This bought me time to prepare my case on appeal. I also learned that due torepparttar 119355 fact that I was
