Suspect in Wyoming Kidnapping Won't Fight Extradition

BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) - A Montana man charged with kidnapping and assaulting an 11-year-old girl won't fight extradition to Wyoming to face the charges. Jesse Paul Speer waived his right to an extradition hearing in a brief court appearance Monday in Bozeman.

Speer was dressed in an orange prison jump suit and only spoke to give Judge Holly Brown his name and to answer yes and no questions.
Public defender Eric Brewer told Brown that law enforcement officials confiscated Speer's eyeglasses and questioned him without an attorney present. Brewer requested that officers not interrogate Speer any further without a lawyer.

Speer is being held without bond in Gallatin County Detention Center until he is transported to Wyoming. Brewer says he expects the move to happen soon but does not know when.
