Will they Extradite me??
I am currently on probation in Colorado, but just lost my job and things aren’t looking better. I was wanting to go to California to start over, but need to know if they’ll extradite me back to CO. The probation is for a misdemeanor and a traffic thing from a while back. I just want to know before I make my decision….Thank you…

You cannot make the decision on your own. You just said you are on probation. So, you would need to check in with your probation officer and a motion may need to be made to the chief judge in charge of probationers and probation compliance programs. Otherwise, simply moving without authority to do so will certainly violate the terms of most probation programs and thus can cause a warrant to be issued for your arrest.
This site gives you a general overview of probation in Colorado. http://www.state.co.us/gov_dir/leg_dir/lcsstaff/research/PRISONChpt10.htm which includes the following:
Once placed on probation, the court may, as a condition of probation, require that the defendant:
• work faithfully at suitable employment or pursue a course of study or vocational training to equip the defendant for suitable employment;
• undergo available medical or psychiatric treatment;
• attend or reside in a facility established for the instruction, recreation, or residence of persons on probation;
• support the defendant's dependents and meet other family responsibilities, including a payment plan for child support;
• pay reasonable costs of court proceedings or costs of probation supervision;
• pay any fines or fees imposed by the court;
• repay all or part of any reward paid by a crime stopper organization;
• refrain from possessing a firearm, destructive device, or any other dangerous weapon;
• refrain from excessive use of alcohol or any unlawful use of a controlled substance;
• report to a probation officer at reasonable times, as directed by the court;
• remain within the jurisdiction of the court, unless granted permission to leave;
• answer all reasonable inquiries by the probation officer and justify to the officer any change of address or employment;
• be subject to home detention;
• be restrained from contact with the victim or victim's family members for crimes involving domestic violence; and
• satisfy any other conditions reasonably related to the defendant's rehabilitation.
In addition, offenders convicted of an offense involving unlawful sexual behavior or for which the factual basis involved an offense involving unlawful sexual behavior must, as a condition of probation, submit to and pay for a chemical blood test to determine the genetic markers.
