A: Yes. He can move within the state. Both Owensboro and Muhlenberg are located in Kentucky. Kentucky is a bond state. This means that although the bond may be really high there has to be a bond set. There should be a bond that is articulable and able to be posted. There could be a typo in the question, but if not then it appears both warrants are actually in the stat of Kentucky. The inmate should be fluid between the jails.
