While in a Ellis county jail on a misdemeanor charge, during that time period in jail a 24 hr. out of county warrant hold is placed on you also on a misdemeanor charge. If the out of county (Dallas County) authorities DO NOT pick you up while you are on hold detained in the county jail and are released, are the misdemeanor charges that apply to the out of county warrant still remain active? Are the out of county warrant charges dismissed or given "time served" because you were not picked up during the 24 hr. hold??
Warrant is still active and still subject to arrest and prosecution at any time. He should get a lawyer and go turn himself in so that the warrant will not pop up at an inconvenient time.

The Dallas County warrants would still be active. When he is released from Ellis County he needs to get an attorney and address the Dallas County warrants/charges.
The warrants will remain active even though he was not brought to Dallas County. The cases are NOT dismissed or given time served just because he was not picked up within the 24 hour hold time period.
