Default 1 year in confinement 4years probation: Stay in County? Go to prison?

I have a question my guy is in county jail his next court date April thatíll be 6 months sitting in county from what the information I gathered heís looking at 1 year in confinement 4years probation,will he go to one of the prison for his sentence Iím worried because I donít have transportation to visit him if he goes to a different jail also he has another warrant in another state once he get out will that state pick him up so he could be prosecute? How could they extraditite him to another state if heís most definitely going to be on probation the state heís in the county at... So all together heís looking at 2 years... itís gonna be hard without him!

It will depend on the jurisdictions, and the status of the warrant when he is ready to be released from prison #1. He has from now to then to deal with it by contacting the State prosecutors/police that have filed it.

If nothing changes, they could file a detainer, which would mean he would not be released, but be held at prison # 1 until the warrant folks came to get him. If no detainer, he would be released to probation with the warrant still pending and his PO would be involved.

It took My Mr over a year (more than once) to get through the court system; then a few more months to be transferred to prison. Also, here in KY, Class C & D felons with 10 years or less can do their time in a county facility. County sucks. Prison is so much better for him: more / better programs / classes & opportunities to get extra good time, more yard time, longer visits, contact visits.

But, yeah, your fella will have less than a year to serve after getting jail credit (if applicable, since he has a detainer). Best guess is that he'll just stay in county

If you can find out what the warrant is for, it may be able to be taken care of before his release date rolls around

If no detainer is filed, and if whichever jail that has him locked up at the moment doesn't run a criminal records check during their release preparations, he will be released, but the warrant will still be active.

Mine did three years in county awaiting trial/sentencing. It could be worse.
All the advice below is true. Depending on the second charge (outstanding warrant) and the amount of his sentencing on charge one, some districts will consider time served. But don't count on that, it's just one of the myriad of options. Typically you'll see someone with short sentences serve out the first one, get a release date and then be picked up from county and taken to the next jurisdiction for sentencing/time. While you have this time, make sure he has nothing else outstanding anywhere. For example, mine has been down 16'ish years, still has an outstanding mis. in his county of arrest. You can clear those things up while he's in county and not have the additional headache when he is finally released.

Not being able to visit is hard. But there are usually phone calls, sometimes video visits and always letters. Speak up about your feelings and keep it real, you can get through this.

He won't be able to serve both the gun and the marijuana charge at the same time because it's two different states (unless there's a state agreement, which can sometimes, but rarely, happen).

I doubt he'll go to state prison if they credit him with time served in county and he only has 6 months remaining on the sentence. Unless he was on parole at the time, in which case he may end up back in prison. The other state? That will start the process all over again when he ends his time in jail.
