DA: Might take months for Marine to return from Mexico

READ MORE:
JACKSONVILLE (AP) -- A prosecutor says it could take even longer to return a Marine from Mexican custody to face a murder charge in North Carolina than he originally thought. Onslow County District Attorney Dewey Hudson said he learned Tuesday that it could take three to four months to return Cpl. Cesar Laurean to the U.S. Hudson said that time frame assumes Laurean agrees to be brought back to the United States without a legal fight. Hudson earlier said he understood it might take 60 days to bring Laurean back if he agreed. Laurean was captured last week in Mexico. He is charged with the December murder of Marine Lance Cpl. Maria Lauterbach, who had accused him of rape. (Copyright 2008 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)

Has any one heard when he might come back?

Murder of Marie and her baby

"IF HE AGREES???????????????????????????????" THIS IS THE MOST HEINIOUS OF ALL REPORTED CRIMES, AND THE MILITARY AND THE CITIZENS DO NOTHING. MAY GOD JUDGE US ALL AS THIS IS A STORY OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT JOINS MARINES TO GET MORE BENEFITS AND WHY DON'T WE NOT ONLY HAVE HIM HOUSED AND FED, BUT GIVE HIM MEDICAL BENEFITS AND SOCIAL SECURITY AND PENSION AND GIVE HIS WIFE AND CHILD HOUSING, COMMISSARY, MEDICAL AND OTHER BENEFITS OF AN HONORABLE MILITARY PERSONNEL. NOW HE MUST " AGREE" TO BE BROUGHT BACK AND TRIED????????????? AFTER MURDER AND BURNING BODIES IT SHOWS WHAT A SICK, SICK, SICK SOCIETY HE HAS HELP CREATE.

Take your thorazine and relax

Mexico has laws, just as we do. No one is extradited out of any foreign country ANYWHERE until that nation's due process is completed. The United Sattes doesn't run the world. Meanwhile, please consider how idiotic your ranting is. We gave him housing, medical, dental, commissary, etc, because he joined the military. Believe it or not, recruiters, drill instructors, and commanding officers are not issued crystal balls, and had no way of knowing that he would eventually kill someone. Until he went UA, he was entitled to all of those benefits, because he was providing honorable service to the nation. They have absolutely nothing to do with his extradition. He will be returned when Mexico is satisfied his rights under Mexican law have been protected, and we guarantee that he will not be executed if convicted. So let's review and hit the key point: The United States doesn't run the world.

He doesn't have to agree

He doesn't have to agree to be brought back. They mean if he waives extradition hearings and agrees to just be brought back. He can also choose to fight extradition and fight being returned to the U.S. Usually the defendants do not win these hearings and are returned to face thier charges. But, it slows down the process when they fight extradition.
