He needs to address this with with Public Defender. If he was arrested, he cannot be held for up to 6 months before arraignment. He is entitled to see a judge and make a motion for bond relief and to get copies of the discovery, the evidence that the prosecutor has to present against him in support of the charge. Have him speak to his court appointed lawyer ASAP.
I am trying to give you a general answer to your question. We do not have an attorney-client relationship by this response on the avvo website. I have not been retained to represent you. I am licensed to practice law in Kentucky and in federal court in this state and the Southern District of Indiana. You need to seek legal advice from an attorney licensed to practice in your area..
