Whenever, upon the trial of any person for a crime, it appears that the offense was
committed in another state or country, under such circumstances that the courts of
this state had jurisdiction thereof, and that the defendant has already been acquitted
or convicted upon the merits, in a judicial proceeding conducted under the criminal
laws of such state or country, founded upon the act or omission with respect to which
he or she is upon trial, such former acquittal or conviction is a sufficient defense. Nothing in this section affects or prevents a prosecution in a court of this state
of any person who has received administrative or nonjudicial punishment, civilian
or military, in another state or country based upon the same act or omission.
