In this example the person arrested has an old PV warrant for walking away from parole years ago. No arrests till now. He turned himself into the FBI on the federal charges.

    Answered . The person will remain in federal custody at least until the federal charges are resolved. If the state parole detainer remains pending at the completion of the federal case, or the federal sentence if there is a conviction and a term or imprisonment is imposed, he will be transferred into state custody.

    Answered . If he is convicted federally, the potential exists that he might serve both sentences consecutively. Make certain that if this occurs that you attempt to get any time served to become concurrent time.

    Have the person hire a local federal criminal lawyer immediately.
