Family tries extradition of Brazilian fighter convicted of son's death in US

 The family of a 34-year-old Brazilian jiu-jitsu fighter, convicted and imprisoned by the United States Justice, tries to extradite him to Brazil. Sanderson Dantas, who is from Christmas but was living in California, was charged with the death of his youngest son, Dax, who was only two months old. He has been detained since last year and, despite being tried, denies the crime.
 The family's request was submitted to the Public Defender's Office (DPU) in Natal. According to the head of the organ, the defender Wagner Ramos, the case was sent to the Itamaraty and passed on to the Brazilian consulate in Los Angeles, which should study the situation and ask for or not the extradition. "They should try to negotiate. In the United States, each state has different legislation, which makes the process difficult," he said.
 Sanderson's mother, physical therapist Edna Dantas heads the request. She considers that Decree No. 9,199 of November of this year, which regulated the Migration Law (No. 13,445 of May of this year), guarantees the right to extradition of Sanderson, who was sentenced to 25 years in prison.
 As an argument, the family also uses the case of American pilots Joseph Lepore and Jan Paul Paladino, who were convicted last year in Brazil after 11 years of an air crash that killed 154 people in the country but are in the United States.
 Sanderson is Edna's only son. She says she currently has to send money to the country to pay for man-eating expenses in prison. Costs that left the family in debt. The family's goal, she said, is that Sanderson can at least serve sentence and appeal the initial sentence in Brazil.
 "We can not afford to stay there for 25 years, I have no right to live there for 25 years, I do not know how to speak English, I can not afford to stay there. It will be sad to see him in this situation, I will feel it, but if I can not have what I want out of life, I will take advantage of what life gives me. says Edna.
