ICAOS Advisory Opinions

11-2006 [A receiving state closing supervision interest, does not preclude the jurisdiction of the Compact except for cases where the original term of supervision has expired]
2-2010 [If a sending state modifies a sentencing order so that the offender no longer meets the definition of “supervision,” no further jurisdiction exists to supervise the offender under the compact and qualifies as a discharge requiring a receiving state to close supervision.]
1-2019 [Except in those excluded cases where the offender is discharged from supervision under the original application for supervision, absconders who are subsequently apprehended are subject to the compact and Rules 4.112 (b) and 5.107.]
