Hsu agrees to return to California without a fight

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) ” Disgraced Democratic fundraiser Norman Hsu agreed Wednesday to return to California without a fight by waiving his rights to extradition proceedings.

Hsu appeared in court, his hands cuffed and his ankles shackled, as he read legal documents and answered Judge Brian Flynn’s questions about giving up his right to fight extradition.

During the course of the questioning, Flynn asked Hsu, “Are you thinking clearly this morning?”

Hsu responded, “Yes, your honor.”

Flynn said authorities usually arrive within 10 days to take custody of an extradited individual but district attorney Pete Hautzinger said he expects San Mateo County authorities to arrive Thursday to take Hsu back to California.

Hsu was arrested in Grand Junction, Colo., on Sept. 6 after he failed to show up for a court appearance in California for a 1991 grand theft case that resulted in a conviction.
