Hi everybody--quick question I hope somebody can help me with! I think I asked about this awhile ago, but didn't get much response. My fiance just asked about this tonight, and so I thought I'd see if someone here might know. He asked about the detainer section on his doc site, and after I read it to him he got very concerned as to why there are 2 different detainers. I told him I figured both just meant that the DOC had to notify probation and parole when he was released, so supervision could begin immediately......but why would there be 2 detainers? I copy and pasted the section from his thing below. He's worried there might be charges against him that he doesn't know about or that they're going to detain him when he finishes his prison sentence
Does anybody on here have experience with or know much about detainers??
I hate to sound mean, because it is not meant that way. When you put "usa" on your profile, it limits us that have the answers to a) not answering at all, or; b) giving generic answers. Please give as much info as you can. It assists us in ways you can't imagine.
I am going to assume that the detainers are from California, based on the city you left. I am also going to assume that your loved one is incarcerated in another state. This being so, google "Interstate Agreement on Detainers California" and you will find where the statute is codified in CA state law. This will provide you with the remedy that you are seeking.
I hope that I have been of some small service.
GottheTshirt--I posted it in the Florida forum, so I assumed everybody would know I was talking about Florida.
Tina--I was looking at other people's things on the DOC site, and some actually say "DETAIN" under the "type", rather than NTFY. I am still crossing my fingers that all it really is is notify P&P that he's getting out, so they can start his supervision. I did email both the DOC and Bartow P&P, and hopefully will hear from them this week. Would the FL state attorney's office be able to tell me if there are any pending charges/warrants for him in the entire state, or just in one county?
