Annotation: MANY STATE AND FEDERAL PRISON INMATES FACE OUTSTANDING CHARGES IN OTHER JURISDICTIONS WHICH WILL TYPICALLY FILE DETAINERS AGAINST SUCH INMATES.
Abstract: PRISONERS SUBJECT TO DETAINERS HAVE OFTEN HAD TO SUFFER DISABILITIES BECAUSE OF THE DETAINERS AND HAVE OFTEN EXPERIENCED DIFFICULTY IN ARRANGING FOR SPEEDY TRIALS ON THEIR OUTSTANDING CHARGES. RECENTLY THERE HAS BEEN CONSIDERABLE LEGAL ACTIVITY REGARDING THE LAW OF DETAINERS AND THE CURRENT STATE OF THE LAW IS ELABORATE AND COMPLEX. THESE MATERIALS DISCUSS THE LEGAL CONTOURS OF THE DETAINER PROBLEM AND EXPLORE THE WAY IN WHICH THE LEGAL PROCESS HAS RESPONDED TO THE DIFFICULT ISSUES POSED. THEY SHOULD BE OF PARTICULAR USE TO INMATES SUBJECT TO DETAINERS AND TO THE LAWYERS AND LAW STUDENTS REPRESENTING THEM. A SECOND CASEBOOK IN THE AREA OF POSTCONVICTION LEGAL PRACTICES IS ENTITLED 'CASES AND MATERIALS ON PRISON INMATE LEGAL ASSISTANCE.' (AUTHOR ABSTRACT) (SNI ABSTRACT)
