Weinstein extradition hearing adjourned until December

"LA County sends the paperwork to the Wende facility; Wende then gives us a copy of the paperwork," said Flynn on the extradition process. "We are then tasked with acting on behalf of the LA County DA in scheduling the proceeding here in Erie County Court.

"In the interim, it appears that the LA County District Attorney's Office and Mr. Weinstein's attorneys have come to an agreement to get today's date adjourned," Flynn continued. "I'm not part of that agreement - I have no dog in that fight at all - all I'm doing is pretty much facilitating the extradition of Mr. Weinstein back to LA County."

If an adjournment agreement had not been reached, the judge would have asked Weinstein if he agreed to go back to Los Angeles, and of course, Weinstein would have said 'yes' or 'no.'

If he agrees, then the proceedings would essentially be over, and Weinstein would be transported to California. If he disagrees, then a second hearing would be scheduled.

Weinstein is serving a 23 year prison sentence for sex crimes at Wende Correctional Facility in Alden. Back in March, Weinstein was transferred from Rikers Island.
