Randy Quaid and wife no-shows again in Santa Barbara court
The Quaids, who have missed a string of hearings on felony vandalism and other charges, are accused of squatting in and trashing a Montecito home they used to own. They have fled to Canada to escape a malicious group they have called "Hollywood star-whackers" and an immigration hearing for Randy has been set for Nov. 23.
In Santa Barbara, Superior Court Judge Donna Geck has issued arrest warrants for the couple. Anthony Davis, a prosecutor on the case, said Tuesday that his office has not yet decided whether to seek the Quaids' extradition.
The Quaids have forefeited a total of $1 million in bail.
Sanger told the judge he was no longer representing Evi Quaid on an accusation that she violated her probation on an earlier charge of defrauding a posh Santa Barbara hotel. He also noted the possibility of "conflict" in continuing to represent both Evi and Randy in the vandalism case.
