No demand for the extradition of a person charged with a crime in another state shall be recognized by the governor unless in writing alleging, except in cases arising under §§ 12-9-7 and 12-9-8, that the accused was present in the demanding state at the time of the commission of the alleged crime, and that after the commission of the alleged crime he or she fled from the state, and accompanied by a copy of an indictment found or by information supported by affidavit in the state having jurisdiction of the crime, or by a copy of an affidavit made before a judge there, together with a copy of any warrant which was issued, upon the indictment or information, or by a copy of a judgment of conviction or of a sentence imposed in execution of the judgment, together with a statement by the executive authority of the demanding state that the person claimed has escaped from confinement or has broken the terms of his or her bail, probation, or parole. The indictment, information, or affidavit made before the judge must substantially charge the person demanded with having committed a crime under the law of that state, and the copy of indictment, information, affidavit, judgment of conviction, or sentence must be authenticated by the executive authority making the demand.
