NRS 179.183 Form of demand. No demand for the extradition of a person charged with crime in another state shall be recognized by the Governor unless it is:

1. In writing alleging, except in cases arising under NRS 179.189, that the accused was present in the demanding state at the time of the commission of the alleged crime, and that thereafter the accused fled from the state; and

2. Accompanied by a copy of an indictment found or by information supported by affidavit in the state having jurisdiction of the crime, or by a copy of an affidavit made before a magistrate there, together with a copy of any warrant which was issued thereupon; or

3. Accompanied by a copy of a judgment of conviction or of a sentence imposed in execution thereof, together with a statement by the executive authority of the demanding state that the person claimed has escaped from confinement or has broken the terms of the person's bail, probation or parole.

The indictment, information or affidavit made before the magistrate must substantially charge the person demanded with having committed a crime under the law of that state; and the copy of indictment, information, affidavit, judgment of conviction or sentence must be authenticated by the executive authority making the demand.
