What law will be applied if someone catches a felony in another state and wants to change venues to their home state - the other state that the felony was charged in or your home state's?
Question Details: Can they ask for change of venues when the trial is about to begin?
Is this a charge under state law, as it probably is (the vast majority of criminal charges are state, not federal) then you can't change venue from one state to another--only possibly within a state for good reason, like demonstrable bias in one county or city (which may let you have the trial in another county or city). If you are charged by, for example, SD or violating SD law, it is SD which charged you and will try you for violating its law. No other state has the power to enforce SD criminal law.
