LIVINGSTON COUNTY – The Idaho fugitives who were arrested by the Nunda Police Department have consented to return to their home state to face their charges.
Chad Bowman, 40, waived formal extradition procedures and agreed to voluntarily return to Bonner County, Idaho, to answer to numerous felony charges, including drug charges for both Chad and Samantha and Attempted Battery of an Officer and Unlawful Possession of a Firearm for Chad.
“I have explained that Mr. Bowman does not have to consent to extradition,” said Bowman’s lawyer Jeannie Michalski. “Still, he would like to waive and return there to move forward.”
The Livingston County District Attorney’s Office said that Samantha Bowman has also agreed to waive extradition proceedings.
Judge Robert Wiggins added that he has received a writ of habeus corpus from Idaho, meaning that they are requesting the Bowmans’ presence in Bonner County to face the charges.
According to a press release from Nunda Police Chief Jeffrey Wilcox, both Chad and Samantha Bowman were apparently living on Newville Road and were pulled over and arrested on Barkertown Road after they were seen exiting the residence.
According to the Bonner County Sheriff’s Office, Chad’s warrants were issued on April 8, 2015, and Samantha’s were issued on April 21, 2015.
