Rule 5-103: Reporting Juvenile Non-Compliance and Retaking

  1. At any time during supervision if a juvenile is out of compliance with conditions of supervision, the receiving state shall notify the sending state using Form IX Quarterly Progress, Violation or Absconder Report, which shall contain:

    a. the date of the new citation or technical violation that forms the basis of the violation;

    b. description of the new citation or technical violation;

    c. status and disposition, if any;

    d. supporting documentation regarding the violation including but not limited to police reports, drug testing results, or any other document to support the violation.

    e. description of efforts made to redirect the behavior, including therapeutic interventions, incentives and/or graduated sanctions, or other corrective actions consistent with supervision standards in the receiving state; and;

    f. receiving state recommendations.

  2. The sending state shall respond to a violation report in which a revocation or discharge is recommended by the receiving state no later than ten (10) business days following receipt by the sending state. The response shall include the action to be taken by the sending state, which may include continue supervision, and the date that action will occur.
  3. The decision of the sending state to retake a juvenile shall be conclusive and not reviewable within the receiving state. If the sending state determines the violation requires retaking or retaking is mandatory, the following shall be considered:

    a. In those cases where the juvenile is suspected of having committed a criminal offense or an act of juvenile delinquency in the receiving state, the juvenile shall not be retaken without the consent of the receiving state until discharged from prosecution, or other form of proceeding, imprisonment, detention, or supervision.

    b. The Form VI Application for Services and Waiver has the appropriate signatures; no further court procedures will be required for the juvenile’s return. 

    c. A duly accredited officer of a sending state may enter a receiving state and apprehend and retake any such juvenile on probation or parole consistent with probable cause requirements, if any. If this is not practical, a warrant may be issued and the supervising state shall honor that warrant in full. 

    d. The sending state shall return the juvenile in a safe manner, pursuant to the ICJ Rules within five (5) business days. This time period may be extended up to an additional five (5) business days with the approval from both ICJ Offices.
