Wisconsin Interstate Agreement On Detainers

Applicability of the agreement: the agreement applies only to “a person (who) has imposed a prison sentence in a prison or prison institute” (Articles III bis) and IV, point a)) and is therefore not applicable to a person detained awaiting trial. See UNITED States v. Reed, 620 F.2d 709, 711-12 (9. Cir.), cert. United States v Evans, 423 F. Supp. 528, 531 (S.D.N.Y. 1976), aff`d, 556 F.2d 561 (2d Cir. 1977).

Since the agreement applies only to an inmate based on a spent “charge, information or complaint” requiring “procedure” (Article III A) and IV, point a), the agreement does not apply to an inmate on the basis of a parole warrant. See Reed, supra. The parole procedure is presented in 18 United States.C 4214 (b). The agreement also does not apply to probation agreements. See Carchman v. Nash, 473 U.S. 716 (1985). As used in this agreement: (a) “State”: a U.S.

state; The United States of America; U.S. territory or property The District of Columbia; Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. (b) “country of shipment”: a state in which a prisoner is detained at the time of the opening of a final decision request in accordance with Article III or at the time when an application for custody or availability is made in accordance with Article IV of Article IV of the article. (c) “State of Receiving,” the state in which proceedings must be initiated in respect of an indictment, information or complaint, in accordance with Article III or Article IV of Article III. Party states note that the indictments of a prisoner, detainees on charges, information or complaints, and difficulties in ensuring a speedy trial against persons already detained in other jurisdictions, create uncertainties that hinder the treatment and rehabilitation programmes of prisoners. Therefore, the policy of the States Parties and the purpose of this Convention are to promote the swift and orderly imposition of such charges and the determination of the regular status of all detainees on the basis of unfounded accusations, information or complaints. States of the parties also note that the procedures relating to these taxes and persons, when they come from another jurisdiction, cannot be properly carried out without a cooperative procedure. The other purpose of this agreement is to provide for such cooperation procedures.
