You’ll need to get with an attorney to go over the case in more detail, as well as to investigate the hold on your family member. I’d be curious to know whether your family member had another pending charge against him at the time of arrest, or if he was out on bond.
It is feasible that the original warrant was for missing court on those charges and now they are not in a hurry to bring it forward. Call the Circuit clerk and make sure a public defender has been assigned to his case. Then direct all questions to him. Otherwise, someone needs to hire him a lawyer to get this resolved.
