I have a friend that needs to be transferred from the county jail he is being held in to the county jail he has warrants in. He is on a Federal hold and if the warrants he has in another county were dismissed then he could be put on house arrest. So what ways has anyone heard of inmates being moved from one county jail to another?

He is awaiting federal court in the same county as his warrants, it's just that the Federal MARSHALLS put him in a different county jail and now he can't get released on house arrest until those warrants are recalled or he appears before the judge on them. So he needs to have a reason to ask to be moved to another jail. Like if he knows someone in jail with him that he had info on their court case could he maybe get moved away from that person?

Hi @brettaustin1819

 

Has your friend discussed this with his public defender?

Yes, he has and she is trying to come up with something clever to get him moved back to the county that his warrants are in, so then she can request another hearing in federal court. So he can get released to house arrest.

So legally, what are the reasons you can get moved to another jail. He is on a Federal hold they aren't going to come get him and take him to court in a different county on a county warrant. That cost to much money for them to do that at least that's what I am being told.

I've already told you.  He needs to file a demand for trial.  Here's the statute:  "217.450. 1. Any person confined in a department correctional facility may request a final disposition of any untried indictment, information or complaint pending in this state on the basis of which a law enforcement agency, prosecuting attorney's office, or circuit attorney's office has delivered a certified copy of a warrant and has requested that a detainer be lodged against him with the facility where the offender is confined. The request shall be in writing addressed to the court in which the indictment, information or complaint is pending and to the prosecuting attorney charged with the duty of prosecuting it, and shall set forth the place of imprisonment."

 

After the demand is properly made and received, the county prosecutor has 180 days to bring him to trial on those pending cases.
