AS 12.70.240. Written Waiver of Extradition Proceedings.

(a) A person arrested in this state charged with having committed a crime in another state or alleged to have escaped from confinement, or broken the terms of bail, probation, or parole may waive the issuance and service of the warrant provided for in AS 12.70.060 and 12.70.070 and all other procedure incidental to extradition proceedings, by executing or subscribing in the presence of a judge or magistrate within this state a writing that states that the person consents to return to the demanding state; however, before the waiver is executed or subscribed by that person, the judge or magistrate shall inform that person of the right to the issuance and service of a warrant of extradition and of the right to apply for a writ of habeas corpus as provided for in AS 12.70.090 .

(b) If and when that consent is executed, it shall immediately be forwarded to the office of the governor of this state and filed therein. The judge or magistrate shall direct the officer having the person in custody to deliver immediately that person to the duly accredited agent of the demanding state, and shall deliver or cause to be delivered to the agent a copy of the consent.

(c) Nothing in this section is considered to limit the rights of the accused person to return voluntarily and without formality to the demanding state, nor shall this waiver procedure be considered to be an exclusive procedure or to limit the powers, rights, or duties of the officers of the demanding state or of this state.
