Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

725 ILCS 225/5

    (725 ILCS 225/5) (from Ch. 60, par. 22)
    Sec. 5. Extradition of persons imprisoned or awaiting trial in another state or who have left the demanding state under compulsion.
    When it is desired to have returned to this State a person charged in this State with a crime, and such person is imprisoned or is held under criminal proceedings then pending against him in another state, the Governor of this State may agree with the Executive Authority of such other state for the extradition of such person before the conclusion of such proceedings or his term of sentence in such other state, upon condition that such person be returned to such other state at the expense of this State as soon as the prosecution in this State is terminated.
    The Governor of this State may also surrender on demand of the Executive Authority of any other state any person in this State who is charged in the manner provided in Section 23 of this Act with having violated the laws of the state whose Executive Authority is making the demand, even though such person left the demanding state involuntarily.
    Notwithstanding any other provision of this Act, any person incarcerated in any federal facility may be released to the custody of the duly accredited officers or designees of those officers of a foreign state if:
        (1) the person has violated the terms of his or her
probation, post-release supervision, or parole or has an unexpired sentence in the foreign state;
        (2) the foreign state has personal jurisdiction over
that person; and
        (3) the foreign state has issued a valid warrant for
the apprehension of that person or has issued a commitment order to serve a sentence in a state or local correctional facility. For that purpose no formalities shall be required other than establishing the authority of the officer and the identity of the person to be apprehended. All legal requirements to obtain extradition of fugitives from justice are expressly waived by the State of Illinois as to those persons.
