my boyfriend was arrested for hunting on his own property, but apparently was convicted of a felony about 20 yrs ago. he is awaiting arraignment, they wouldn't let him out on bail until then. what am i to expect and how long could he get, will they let him out on bail after the arraignment? Someone apparently knew about his past because the 2 state game warden that arrested him said that he had already ran his name and knew he was a felon. and that they weren't there by accident.
