If, from the examination before the judge or District Court commissioner, it appears
that the person held is the person charged with having committed the crime alleged
and, except in cases arising under § 9-106 of this title, that the person has fled from justice, the judge or District Court
commissioner must, by a warrant reciting the accusation, commit the person to the
local correctional facility for a term specified in the warrant but not exceeding
30 days, as will enable the arrest of the accused to be made under a warrant of the
Governor on a requisition of the executive authority of the state having jurisdiction
of the crime, unless the person gives bail as provided in § 9-116 of this title or until the person is legally discharged.
