Fallin: Baby Veronica's dad has a right to fight extradition Published: August 13, 2013

Gov. Mary Fallin’s office today said she will not act on an extradition warrant from South Carolina for Dusten Brown, the father of Baby Veronica, until he has a chance to contest the warrant in court.

“Governor Fallin has spoken personally with South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley about the case,” her office said in a statement.

“Mr. Brown has chosen to contest the legality of his arrest warrant in Sequoyah County Court, as (is) his right. The court will hear his case on September 12, approximately one month from now.

“Governor Fallin believes that Mr. Brown should have the opportunity to argue his case in a court of law, and she will not act on the rendition order before that date,” the statement said.
