There are a tangled morass of issues now. Texas "supposedly" wants Jeffs, I say "supposedly" because we haven't heard of a new filing for rendition/extradition yet. At this point I expect them to try. The Feds "supposedly" want Jeffs. I imagine Utah and Texas and the Feds are conspiring (in altogether legal fashion) on what is the best strategy to keep Warren legally locked up for as long as possible, ultimately with him ending up in Texas in Barbara Walther's court.
The Salt Lake Tribune - "Defense attorney Walter F. Bugden filed the request on Tuesday, hours after the Utah Supreme Court reversed Jeffs’ conviction and sent the case back for a new trial. The high court said Jeffs was denied a fair hearing because of faulty instructions given to jurors.The FLDS strategy is to get the trial business done and over with in Utah prior to going to Texas or maybe even getting Warren out of jail (if only for a bit) while awaiting trial in Texas. Figure at some point in here there will be a bail hearing for Warren in Utah. I don't know what event comes first. Just figure it's possible that Warren could walk the streets, at least for a little bit, before meeting the witch in Texas.
Bugden said that Jeffs has been 'incarcerated for many months' and has the right to have the case reheard as quickly as possible.
Judge James Shumate, who presided over Jeffs’ first trial, on Wednesday set a hearing on a retrial for 9 a.m. in St. George."
