There can be a lot of variables to be able to properly answer your question in this forum. If the judge granted a form of relief known as Cancellation of Removal, then your boyfriend should be released if no the same day, then the next, unless it was on a weekend or if the government has reserved the right to appeal the decision of the judge, My advise is to contact a local experienced immigration attorney her in Houston. Good luck
