Rule 5.103 - Offender behavior requiring retaking

(a) Upon a request by the receiving state and documentation that the offender’s behavior requires retaking, a sending state shall issue a warrant to retake or order the return of an offender from the receiving state or a subsequent receiving state within 15 business days of the receipt of the violation report.

(b) If the offender is ordered to return in lieu of retaking, the receiving state shall request reporting instructions per Rule 4.111 within 7 business days following the receipt of the violation report response.

(c) The receiving state retains authority to supervise until the offender’s directed departure date. If the offender does not return to the sending state as ordered, then the sending state shall issue a warrant, no later than 10 business days following the offender’s failure to appear in the sending state.

ICAOS Advisory Opinions
2-2005 [An out of state offender may be arrested and detained by a receiving state who are subject to retaking based on violations of supervision, See Rule 4.109-1]
10-2006 [Offenders transferred prior to the adoption of ICAOS rules August 1, 2004 may be retaken under the current rules if one of the significant violations occurred after August 1, 2004]
4-2007 [It is unreasonable to assume the subsequent application of Rule 5.103 (a) to include violations occurring prior to an application being accepted as a basis to require retaking]
