780.25 Written waiver of extradition proceedings.

Sec. 25.

     Any person arrested in this state charged with having committed any crime in another state or alleged to have escaped from confinement, or broken the terms of his or her bail, probation, or parole may waive the issuance and service of the warrant provided for in sections 6 and 7 and all other procedure incidental to extradition proceedings, by executing or subscribing in the presence of a judge of any court of record within this state a writing that states that he or she consents to return to the demanding state. However, before the waiver is executed or subscribed by the person, the judge shall inform the person of his or her rights to the issuance and service of a warrant of extradition and to obtain a writ of habeas corpus as provided for in section 9.
     When a person's consent has been duly executed, it shall promptly be forwarded to and filed in the office of the governor of this state. The judge shall direct the officer having the person in custody to promptly deliver the person to the accredited agent or agents of the demanding state, and shall deliver or cause to be delivered to that agent or agents a copy of the person's consent.
     If a waiver is executed, the judge shall remand the person to custody without bail. The order shall direct the officer having the person in custody to deliver the person to the duly authorized agent of the demanding state together with a copy of the order and the waiver.
