NY has to decide if he is worth the time and trouble to Extradite him back to NY. It is a lengthy, paperwork process. Plus sending two officers to MA to physically pick him up and transport him back to NY. His attorney should contact NY and ask if they want him that badly. The attorney should also ask the MA judge to release him upon his promise to go to NY and clear the warrant on his own volition. The warrant will not go away, it will remain in the system until he answers to it.
Right now there's a warrant for his arrest and a request for extradition. He's going to have to appear in front of a judge and the judge has some discretion of whether to put him on bail or hold him for the other state to pick him up for a limited time. Which of the options the judge will exercise is unknown.
And this hearing it is very important to be represented by competent criminal defense lawyer so start looking.
