My boyfriend is in okmulgee county jail waiting on muskogee and lincoln county jails to come get him for failure to pay on fines. Do the other counties have a certain time period they have to get him in? and if they don't pick him up within that time can okmulgee just let him go?

In NJ and the other States with which I am familiar, there is no set time limit for one County to come and get him from another County, although it usually done within a relatively short time period since the purpose is to get the person back in front of the judge in the requesting County, in regards to the failure to comply with the sentence imposed by the Court (the outstanding fines). Typically, I would expect this to occur in a week or two at most, depending on Court schedules and personnel availability. Obviously, if he has a lawyer in the Counties seeking him, the lawyer can make specific inquiries about when the transfer will take place, or make other applications to the Courts for his release if the transfers do not take place. Good luck.
