Sec. 2. (a) When an indictment or information is pending against a defendant confined in
this state under a judgment or court order, the court with jurisdiction over the pending
criminal action shall, after application by the prosecuting attorney, order that the
defendant be produced before the court for prosecution. The defendant shall not be entitled to release pending trial on the indictment or
information. The court may order that the defendant be surrendered to the sheriff of the county
in which the court issuing the order is located. The court may order the sheriff to convey the defendant from the institution and
commit the defendant to the jail or to another place of custody specified in the order. If the proceeding is delayed, the court may order the defendant returned temporarily
to the institution until the presence of the defendant before the court is required.
(b) When an indictment or information is pending against a defendant:
(1) confined in an institution within this state pending trial for another offense;
(2) who has been released by order of another court pending trial before that court
for another offense;
the court shall, upon motion of the prosecuting attorney, issue a warrant of detainer
to the court before which the other prosecution is pending. The court to which the order of detainer is issued, shall, upon termination of the
proceedings before the court, deliver custody of the defendant to the sheriff of the
county in which the court issuing the warrant is situated. Upon delivery, the court shall return the warrant to the court of issuance showing
such fact. A duplicate copy of the return shall be served upon the prosecuting attorney who
requested the issuance of the warrant.
