Governor Haley signs warrant for Dusten Brown

From our News Partners at WCBD-TV:

Governor Nikki Haley has officially gotten involved in the on-going battle over Baby Veronica

Gov. Haley signed a requisition warrant requesting Dusten Brown's return to Charleston to face charges of felony custodial interference. The governor's spokesperson said that the warrant is being overnighted to Oklahoma.

Earlier Monday, Sheriff Al Cannon said that warrant from Governor Haley will expedite the extradition process. However, Cannon said his office does not know the whereabouts of both Brown and baby Veronica.

"My personal opinion is that his actions are only digging his hole deeper as it relates to that charge of criminal custodial interference," Cannon said Monday

In a statement to News 2 Monday, Gov. Haley's spokesperson said she will continue to fight to bring Veronica back to her adoptive parents.

"She stands in support of the Capobiancos and shares their desire to bring Veronica home safely," her spokesperson said.

At this time, no one knows how long it will take for Brown to be back in Charleston to face his charges. Cannon, however, said they are doing all they can to make sure this battle is resolved quickly.

"We are working diligently and continue to work diligently on an effort to do those things which are necessary to gain custody of baby Veronica," he said.
