On Jan. 11th 2008, my brother was convicted of fraud felony (theft) and was sentenced 18 months but was granted work release program. The judge is giving him 5 weeks to get the work release program set up but three days ago my brother was caught driving without a license and was taken to custody. We bailed him out but later was not released due to an immigration hold so they are still holding him at King County Jail but was transferred this morning (1-21-08) to Regional Justice Center which is also part of King County Jail. Why was he transferred? And when I looked online on his status all it says is, IMMIGRATION HOLD. It doesn't state a cause number. How long can they hold him in jail for immigration hold after he already post bail. The jail is not part of Immigration so why is he being held for that long for immigration purposes? If anyone can answer these questions it would greatly help our family. I thank you in advance for answering these questions.
