Arkansas Interstate Agreement On Detainers

(g) For any purpose other than those for which temporary detention is exercised under this Agreement, the prisoner shall be considered to be the responsibility of the sending State and subject to its jurisdiction, and any escape from temporary detention may be treated in the same manner as an escape from the original place of detention or in any other legally permitted manner. This Convention shall enter into force in its entirety for a Contracting State, if that State has brought it into force.  A State Party to this Convention may resign from it by enacting a law which abolishes the same thing.  However, the withdrawal of a State shall not affect the status of proceedings already initiated by prisoners or State officials at the time of the entry into force of such withdrawal and shall not affect their rights in this regard. (d) Any request for a final injunction from a prisoner in accordance with paragraph (a) of this Agreement shall serve as a request for a final injunction for all unproven charges, information or complaints on the basis of which prisoners have been filed against the prisoner of the State whose law enforcement officer is specifically the addressee of the application for a final injunction.  The supervisor, the prison officer or any other official in the custody of the prisoner shall immediately inform all law enforcement officers and courts competent in the various jurisdictions of the receiving State of the prisoner`s request for a final decision of the proceedings initiated by the prisoner.  Any notification sent in accordance with this paragraph shall be accompanied by copies of the prisoner`s written notification, application and certificate.  In the absence of a trial for a charge, information or complaint that was considered prior to the prisoner`s return to the original place of detention, such accusation, information or complaint may have no other force or effect, and the court issues an order rejecting it by prejudice. This Agreement shall be interpreted in such a way that its objectives are achieved. . . .
