My sons father just did a year sentence in prison, he was set to b freed Sept 13th 2018, 16 hours before release they issued a new warrant for him for possession that happened with the original charge, he's just been held there without arraignment since Sept 13th. How long can they hold him without giving him an arraignment or court date?
Since Michigan does not have a flat one year sentence that I am aware of, so his sentence is 1 year (minimum) to something (maximum). MDOC can keep him in custody up to the max, unless he is paroled. If he has a matter pending that some jurisdiction is not proceeding on, and that is stopping him from being paroled, you should consult an attorney directly to address the failure to prosecute, and depending on the specific circumstances, what remedies are available.
There are too many facts which need to be considered before a valid opinion could be rendered. You need to consult with his lawyer to determine what is happening.

It is based on such limited information that it is a general answer, and should not be relied upon as a reason for your action or inaction. My response does NOT establish an attorney-client relationship, that may only be established by mutual agreement, and the signing of a written retainer agreement, which will generally require payment for our services. Providing counsel and representation is what we do for a living and, just like you, we must get paid for our work.
