24VAC35-30-160. Transfer Procedures and Documentation.

ASAPs shall not retain offenders who reside outside of or not employed in their service area. In a rate instance, an offender may request not to be transferred. Such request shall be in writing and kept in the offender file. When transfers occur prior to enrollment, no fee shall be collected by the originating ASAP unless otherwise directed by the court of referral.

When transfers occur after enrollment, the entire ASAP fee (minus state portion, if paid to the state) shall be transferred. A lesser amount may be agreed upon by the originating and receiving ASAPs.

Interstate or intrastate transfers of offenders shall be accomplished as provided below.

Receipt of Interstate Transfers. Offenders transferred into the VASAP system will be referred through one of three procedures; (i) petitioning the general district court within the jurisdiction where they reside; (ii) direct referral under the authority of the Interstate Compact Agreement; or (iii) other procedures approved by the Commission on VASAP.

1. Petition. Offenders convicted in another state and requiring VASAP to stop revocation of their operator's license in Virginia, must request VASAP probation through the petition process. This is of special importance to those offenders convicted in states which are members of the Interstate Violator Compact.

2. Direct referral. Offenders who have been convicted in another state and whose operator's license is not subject to revocation or suspension action, or whose license status will not be affected by VASAP involvement, may be referred directly into the VASAP system under the Interstate Compact Agreement. Each referral must be supported by formal documents from the sending state verifying the action taken by the sentencing court.

The following case management procedures and documents shall be used in conjunction with the transfer requirements referred to in Transfer Policy, VASAP Policy and Procedure Manual (24VAC35-10-10 et seq.):
