From the Times:
Silas Potter Jr., the central figure in the Seattle Public Schools financial scandal, was arrested during a traffic stop early Wednesday near Tampa, Fla., after he failed to appear for arraignment Tuesday on theft charges in King County Superior Court.
A King County sheriff's detective who handles fugitive cases received a tip and relayed it to U.S. marshals, who found Potter, sheriff's spokesman John Urquhart said Wednesday morning.
I had a feeling that since Potter was a non-violent criminal that it might hard to find him (he only pays cash and had disconnected his cell phone). But sure enough, he got stopped on a traffic stop.
He will make his first court appearance in Florida on Thursday, Kincheloe said.
Dan Donohoe, spokesman for the Prosecutor's Office, said prosecutors hope to learn on Thursday whether Potter will waive extradition.
If Potter agrees to extradition, he could be brought to Seattle in a matter of days, Donohoe said. If not, it could take about a month for the extradition request to be resolved, he said.
So maybe up to a month to get him back and another month (or so) for all the discovery motions to get through and maybe the court will give all the lawyers for these three time to meet, so I'm thinking we won't see this trial until maybe the beginning of March.
