Default HOW LONG CAN A JAIL HOLD SOMEONE WHO WAS ARRESTED FOR A WARRENT FOR FAILURE TO APPEAR

My husband is a cross country truck driver. He was pulled over in Texas for a broken tail light and when they ran his license he had a warrent out for a failure to appear from New Mexico. The highway patrol arrested him and he is in jail in Texas. The highway patrol told him that if the New Mexico police did not pick him up after 10 days then the Texas jail would release him. I'm wondering exactly how long can they hold him for? Warrent was issued in New Mexico.

A lawyer could get him in front of a judge asap and seek bond or challenge the warrant etc. Otherwise they can hold him for weeks.

Don't just wait for the state to act. get somebody figuring out what is going on at every level. Call the public defender id need be and ask for a hearing.
