Hello! I was just assigned a case load that has quite a few interstate compact cases. When we receive a quarterly report from the receiving state and the request we discharge the minor, do we have the option? The subject still resides in that state and his probation term is not even close to expiring. In addition he still owes restitution....although he is not 18 years old. Are there any criterea for when we discharge? Thanks in advance for any help!

Hello Ms. Wimbish,

Thank you for your interest in the Interstate Commission for Juveniles. According to ICJ Rule 4-105(1), "All communication between states, whether verbal or written, on ICJ issues shall be transmitted between the respective ICJ Offices."

Have you contacted your state's ICJ Office regarding these discharge requests?

Further, ICJ Rule 6-106(4) states, "The receiving state may submit to the sending state a request for early release of the juvenile from probation or parole. In such cases, the sending state shall be provided the opportunity to consider the matter, to advise the court of jurisdiction or state agency of the request, and to make known any objection or concern before the case is closed. Any decision to release a juvenile from probation/parole early shall be made by the appropriate authority in the sending state. The sending state will forward a copy of the discharge report or notification to close based on the receiving state's recommendation or, if the request to close has been denied, provide a written explanation, within sixty (60) calendar days as to why the juvenile cannot be released from probation/parole."

Thank you,

Ashley Lippert
