U.S. Supreme Court

Pearce v. Texas, 155 U.S. 311 (1894)

Pearce v. Texas

No. 596

Submitted November 19, 1894

Decided December 10, 1894

155 U.S. 311


P. being arrested in Texas on a requisition from the Governor of Alabama for his extradition for trial in Alabama on an indictment for embezzlement and larceny, sought his discharge through a writ of habeas corpus on the ground of the invalidity of the indictment under the laws of Alabama. The Court of Criminal Appeals of Texas decided that as it appeared that P. was charged by an indictment in Alabama with the commission of an offense there, and that all the other prerequisites for his extradition had been complied with, he should be extradited, leaving the courts of Alabama to decide whether the indictment was sufficient, and whether the statute of that state was in violation of the Constitution of the United States. Held that this decision did not deny to P. any right secured to him by the Constitution and laws of the United States, and did not erroneously dispose of a federal question.

Motion to dismiss or affirm.
