Extradition Ordered for Escaped Thief

July 24, 1985|PAUL FELDMAN | Times Staff Writer

A Carson man who walked away from North Carolina's Craggy Prison 14 years ago while serving a 10-year sentence for stealing $300 worth of beer and cigarettes from a grocery store was ordered returned to North Carolina on Tuesday by a Los Angeles Municipal Court judge.

The extradition of Ray Brown, 39, a self-employed auto mechanic, was authorized by Judge Jon M. Mayeda after a writ of habeas corpus to allow him to remain free was rejected by the California Supreme Court.

After the brief court hearing, Brown's lawyer, Susan Guberman-Garcia, said her client will seek clemency from North Carolina Gov. Jim Martin.
