Does the Law Governing Interstate Detention Orders Apply to People Serving Sentences in County Jails?
State of Ohio v. James D. Black, Case nos. 2013-0552 and 2013-0805
Fifth District Court of Appeals (Ashland County)
ISSUE: Does the phrase "penal or correctional institution of a party state" in the Interstate Agreement on Detainers (R.C. 2963.30) include county jails?
Editor's note: The Supreme Court determined that a conflict exists between the Fifth and Eighth District Courts of Appeals on this issue. The court also accepted an appeal from the State of Ohio and consolidated the two cases for oral argument.
