Title 12
Criminal Procedure

Chapter 9

R.I. Gen. Laws § 12-9-8

§ 12-9-8. Surrender of person committing an act in one state resulting in a crime in another.

The governor of this state may also surrender, on demand of the executive authority of any other state, any person in this state charged in the other state in the manner provided in § 12-9-4 with committing an act in this state or in a third state, intentionally resulting in a crime in the state whose executive authority is making the demand, when the acts for which extradition is sought would be punishable by the laws of this state, and if the consequences claimed to have resulted from the crime in the demanding state had taken effect in this state. The provisions of this chapter, not otherwise inconsistent, shall apply to those cases, even though the accused was not in that state at the time of the commission of the crime and has not fled from that state; provided, that the governor of this state may, in his or her discretion, make any surrender conditional upon agreement by the executive authority of the demanding state that the person so surrendered will be held to answer no criminal charges of any nature except those set forth in the requisition upon which the person is so surrendered, at least until the person has been given reasonable opportunity to return to this state after his or her acquittal, if he or she shall be acquitted, or if he or she shall be convicted, after he or she shall be released from confinement. Nothing in §§ 12-9-7 and 12-9-8 shall apply to the crime of libel.
