    Answered . He could have been released, because they did not lodge a probation detainer on him. Or, they might have lifted the detainer that was lodged.

    Answered . You indicate that he was in jail on a domestic case. I can only assume he was incarcerated for contempt for not paying child support or for violating a protection for abuse order. If this is the case, you should call Family Court and they may be able to direct your call to someone who can review his case. If you retain an attorney they would also be able to investigate the matter. Good luck.
