Providing this response does not create an attorney client relationship. You should seek an attorney in your local area to review your particular situation

In no way am I offering you legal advice, and in no way has my comment created an attorney-client relationship. You are not to rely upon my note above in any way, but instead need to sit down with counsel and share all relevant facts before receiving fully-informed legal advice.
48 hours s the norm but that many times does not include bookings on fridays and many small jurisdictions are not always following that. Also if the person has outstanding warrants or holds in other jurisdictions, the 48 hour rule will not apply.
