The only way to be released OR after a bond was set is for the court to order him released OR. However, if the bond was set per a schedule and he did not bond out and the prosecutor did not file charges, the he would be released after 48 hours.
This is referring to the question I asked the other day. I want to understand the law on the matter because he shouldn't do time on this. Did the property damage add to the prosecutions case for domestic battery? His attorney is a PD and isn't much help right now.
All that needs to be proven in a battery case is that the defendant knowingly or intentionally touched the other person in a rude, insolent or angry manner. Whether or not your husband should do time, if the State proves the elements, a conviction is certainly possible.

I’ve been very worried about if he will be deported. I think he has his residency and is in the process of getting his green card. If he is... Read more »

More information is needed. Is he a lawful permanent resident? How long has he lived in the U. S.? Were you physically injured? Is he being detained by ICE? Did you pay his bond? Was he released? Such questions are best answered in a confidential setting.
The answer depends on what the prosecutor wants to do. Generally, prosecutors do not extradite from another state so far from Indiana on a level six felony. However, given the Burglary case it is possible the prosecutor would be willing to pay for an extradition.
