Discharges WV DOC tomorrow, should'nt his detainer already be lifted since hes already accepted the plea bargin from the federal charges? He is scheduled to be sentenced August 6, 2018. Is that a possibility for him to be able to come home for the month time lapse in his federal sentencing hearing and being discharged from state prison? Should his detainer be lifted since he's plead already?
Once he finishes his state sentence, he will be turned over to the feds as a result of the detainer. He will then be entitled to a detention hearing to determine whether he should be held in custody or released pending his sentencing date.
