Letter Required when Delivery is Refused
of  these  situations  and  the  procedures  to  follow  when delivery  is  refused  are  discussed  as  follows. Disciplinary  Proceedings  Pending When  disciplinary  proceedings  involving  mili- tary  offenses  are  pending,  obtain  legal  guidance  from a  judge  advocate  of  the  Navy  or  Marine  Corps  before delivery  of  personnel  to  federal,  state,  territory,  com- monwealth, or local authorities if reasonably practi- cal. When Delivery May Be Refused Delivery  may  be  refused  only  in  the  following limited  circumstances: .  Where  the  accused  has  been  retained  for  prose- cution for serious military offenses as defined in the JAGMAN l When the CO considers that extraordinary cir- cumstances exist that indicate delivery should be re- fused REPORT  REQUIRED  WHEN DELIVERY IS REFUSED In any case where it is intended that delivery will be refused, you must report the circumstances to JAG by  telephone,  or  by  message  if  telephone  is  impracti- cal. The initial report is confirmed by letter setting forth a full statement of the facts. The letter should be as shown in figure 10-3. You also must send a copy of the report to the area coordinator. MEMBERS RELEASED ON BAIL OR ON THEIR OWN RECOGNIZANCE A member of the Navy or Marine Corps arrested by  federal,  state,  or  territory  authorities  and  released on bail or on his or her own recognizance has a duty to  return  to  his  or  her  parent  command.  Accordingly, where  a  member  of  the  Navy  or  Marine  Corps  is arrested  by  federal,  state,  or  territory  authorities  and returns to his or her ship or station on bail or on his or her  own  recognizance,   the  CO  after  checking  the facts, date of trial, and approximate length of time needed should grant liberty or leave to permit appear- ance  for  trial,  unless  this  would  have  a  serious  nega- tive impact on the command. If liberty or leave is not granted,  a  judge  advocate  of  the  Navy  or  Marine Corps  should  immediately  be  requested  to  act  as  liai- son with the court. Nothing in this chapter is to be construed as per- mitting  the  member  arrested  and  released  to  avoid  the obligations of bond or of his or her recognizance by reason of his or her being in the military service. REQUESTS TO INTERVIEW SERVICE MEMBERS OR CIVILIAN EMPLOYEES BY FEDERAL CIVILIAN INVESTIGATIVE AGENCIES Requests by the Federal Bureau of Investigations, Naval Criminal Investigative Service, or other federal civilian  investigative  agencies  to  interview  service members  or  civilian  employees  of  the  DON  suspected or accused of crimes should be promptly honored. If there is any refusal of such a request, you must imme- diately  report  it  to  JAG,  or  the  Office  of  General Counsel,  as  appropriate,  by  telephone,  or  by  message if  telephone  is  impractical. REQUEST FOR DELIVERY OF A SERVICE MEMBER SERVING SENTENCE OF A COURT-MARTIAL Authority  to  honor  the  requests  for  delivery  of military personnel serving a sentence of court-martial is provided by Article 14, UCMJ (10 U.S.C.  $ 814). Although seldom used, additional authority and man- datory obligation to deliver such personnel are pro- vided by the Interstate Agreement on Detainers Act (18 U.S.C. Appendix, Section 9) which applies to the federal  agency  holding  the  prisoner.  The  DON,  as  an agency of the federal government, must comply with the Detainers Act. The  Detainers  Act  is  designed  to  avoid  speedy trial issues and to aid in rehabilitation efforts by secur- ing a greater degree of certainty about a prisoner’s future. The act provides a way for the prisoner to be tried on charges pending before state courts, either at the prisoner’s request or at the request of the state where the charges are pending. A report is required when  delivery  is  refused. Upon  request  under  the  Interstate  Agreement  on Detainers  Act  by  either  the  prisoner  or  state  authori- ties, the responsible Navy or Marine Corps SJA will communicate  with  the  appropriate  state  officials  and make sure the cognizant commanders act on all such requests. 10-6
