Can I avoid a prison sentence by moving to a new country before my court date?
I've been charged and am currently waiting for court dates. Can moving to a new country eraticate my charges?

Of course not. With pending charges, no country is likely to let you in to begin with. If you do flee pending charges somehow, you can expect to get additional charges against you, and end up with Interpol, FBI, etc, on your tail. Cook your own goose? How about burned to a crisp, incarcerated for the rest of your worthless life?

Yes, but the other country has to be willing to let you stay.

Do you have a passport? Then yes. But no jobs there. So out of luck on money. & the will cut off funds from home. Much cheaper for them to let you starve to death there than bring you home to feed you there. Unless you are one of the lucky few that can move 16 million to there private bank were the money does vanish. The hour before you commit suiside.

Vietnam doesn't have an extradition treaty with the US. However it doesn't want criminals so it probably wouldn't let you in to begin with.

That would lead to more problems, not fewer. Not only would you still have the same charges, you would also have an arrest warrant.

no. and depending on what you did, they might come get you anyway.. you would need to go to a country that doesn't have an extradition treaty with the country you left.

No. You could move to a non-extradition country and be safe there as long as you don't go to a country that has such treaties with the country your crimes are in...but those charges remain until your statute of limitations expire.

Nope. In addition, those charges would be why any other country would refuse to even let you in.
