  • Laws 1963, c. 159, § 2, p. 559.


  • A misstatement as to a petitioner's status as a fugitive in the extradition documents did not afford petitioner his right under the Uniform Criminal Extradition Act to have the question of whether he should be extradited from the asylum state properly determined by the governor of that state and, therefore, requires that he be dismissed from custody. Koenig v. Poskochil, 238 Neb. 118, 469 N.W.2d 523 (1991).

  • Allegation of delayed trial by the demanding state held invalid reason for refusing extradition. Wise v. State, 197 Neb. 831, 251 N.W.2d 373 (1977).

  • Where one is arrested on demand for extradition, he is not entitled to discharge when demanding state fails to assume custody within thirty days when delay is due to proceedings instituted by him. Prettyman v. Karnopp, 192 Neb. 451, 222 N.W.2d 362 (1974).
