Any person arrested in this State charged with having committed any crime in another
state or alleged to have escaped from confinement, or broken the terms of his bail,
probation or parole may waive the issuance and service of the warrant provided for
in G.S. 15A-727 and 15A-728 and all other procedure incidental to extradition proceedings, by executing or subscribing
in the presence of a judge of any court of record within this State or a clerk of
the superior court a writing which states that he consents to return to the demanding
state: Provided, however, that before such waiver shall be executed or subscribed
by such person it shall be the duty of such judge or clerk of superior court to inform
such person of his rights to the issuance and service of a warrant of extradition
and to obtain a writ of habeas corpus as provided for in G.S. 15A-730.
If and when such consent has been duly executed it shall forthwith be forwarded to
the office of the Governor of this State and filed therein. The judge or clerk of superior court shall direct the officer having such person
in custody to deliver forthwith such person to the duly accredited agent or agents
of the demanding state, and shall deliver or cause to be delivered to such agent or
agents a copy of such consent: Provided, however, that nothing in this section shall
be deemed to limit the rights of the accused person to return voluntarily and without
formality to the demanding state, nor shall this waiver procedure be deemed to be
an exclusive procedure or to limit the powers, rights or duties of the officers of
the demanding state or of this State.
