Elias v. Ramirez, 215 U.S. 398 (1910)

Elias v. Ramirez

No. 30

Submitted November 5, 1909

Decided January 3, 1910

215 U.S. 398


In this case, this Court, reviewing the evidence, reverses the territorial court and finds that there is evidence to show, with sufficient certainty, that an extraditable crime was committed by the person benefited thereby, and thus to satisfy the extradition procedure statute and justify the order of the commissioner committing the accused to await the action of the Executive Department on a requisition made for forgery under the extradition treaty with Mexico.

Although the statements of certain witnesses were unsworn to and therefore might not, under the state law, be admissible before a committing magistrate, under the extradition statute, they are receivable by the commissioner to create a probability of the commission of the crime by the accused.

90 P. 323 affirmed.

The facts ar stated in the opinion.
