2016 Statute


22-2726.Written waiver of extradition proceeding; duty of judge. Any person arrested in this state charged with having committed any crime in another state or alleged to have escaped from confinement or broken the terms of such person's bail, probation, assignment to a community correctional services program, postrelease supervision or parole, or alleged to be under sentence, some part of which remains unexecuted, from which such person has not been paroled, placed on postrelease supervision, discharged or otherwise released, may waive the issuance and service of the warrant provided for in K.S.A. 22-2707 and 22-2708, and amendments thereto, and all other procedure incidental to extradition proceedings, by executing or subscribing in the presence of a judge of any court of record within this state a writing which states that such person consents to return to the demanding state, except that before such waiver is executed or subscribed by such person it shall be the duty of such judge to inform such person of the person's rights to the issuance and service of a warrant of extradition and to obtain a writ of habeas corpus as provided for in K.S.A. 22-2710 and amendments thereto.

If and when such consent has been duly executed it shall forthwith be forwarded to the office of the governor of this state and filed therein. The judge shall direct the officer having such person in custody to deliver forthwith such person to the duly accredited agent or agents of the demanding state, and shall deliver or cause to be delivered to such agent or agents a copy of such consent.

Nothing in this section shall be deemed to limit the rights of the accused person to return voluntarily and without formality to the demanding state, nor shall this waiver procedure be deemed to be an exclusive procedure or to limit the powers, rights or duties of the officers of the demanding state or of this state.
