Lorenzen Wright’s ex-wife fights extradition process

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Sherra Wright made another appearance in a California courtroom this morning where she decided to fight the extradition process.

Wright did not waive extradition. Instead, she is going to challenge that the warrant names her.

The judge granted the hearing for January, but reminded the defendant she can only contest her identity and nothing else.

This can take up to 90 days and can even go before the governor.

Wright was not in a wheelchair during Wednesday's hearing, and her health was not discussed.

She was scheduled for an extradition hearing on Monday, Jan. 8 at Riverside Hall of Justice.

However, she was in a wheelchair, and her attorney asked to postpone the extradition process because Wright needed medical attention.

He didn't say what for and refused to answer our questions.

A public defender who has worked in Riverside for decades gave us insight on what this all could mean.

"Either you waive extradition, basically admit you're the person named and start the clock ticking for someone to pick you up. Or, you can fight your extradition and there can be an identity hearing. The matter can be referred up to the governors office and that can start this more lengthy process," said public defender Jeff Zimel.

Wright is accused in the murder of her ex-husband, former Memphis Grizzlies player, Lorenzen Wright.
