Rule 3.105 - Pre-release transfer request

(a) A sending state may submit a completed request for transfer of supervision no earlier than 120 calendar days prior to an offender’s planned release from a correctional facility.

(b) If a pre-release transfer request has been submitted, a sending state shall notify a receiving state:

  1. if the planned release date changes; or
  2. if recommendation for release of the offender has been withdrawn or denied.

(c) A receiving state may withdraw its acceptance of the transfer request if the offender does not report to the receiving state by the 5th business day following the offender’s intended date of departure and shall provide immediate notice of such withdrawal to the sending state.
