Extraditions

UNIFORM ACT FOR EXTRADITION OF CRIMINALS

Idaho has adopted a uniform statute which governs the extradition of criminal defendants between states. Most other states in the country have adopted the identical uniform statutes to bring consistency to the handling of extradition matters. Idaho’s provisions on extradition are found in the Uniform Rendition Of Accused Persons Act found at Idaho Code 19-4501 through 19-4534. Your can review these statutes by clicking the link found in the previous sentence.


EXTRADITIONS FROM OTHER COUNTRIES

There are occasions when criminal defendants flee to neighboring countries. In such cases, the extradition will be dependant upon the extradition laws of the country where the criminal defendant is located. The county prosecuting attorney works with the United States Department of Justice on such matters.
