My question involves criminal law for the state of: LOUISIANA
My boyfriend got arrested about a week ago because there was a warrant out for his arrest which we thought was for a court date he walked on during probation but after speaking to his PO she it was not that she had gotten that warrant removed. She looked it up and it was for contempt of court (pass due fine of $700) but the thing is it wasn't pass due (PO verified she said he is doing great and that he should not even be in there he was up to date on all payments passing all drug test only one month of probation left.) Somehow it didn't show up as being paid in the collection system. Next payment isn't do til the 13th this month but the PO said that if we go ahead and pay the remaining balance ($207)(we paid) he could be released without seeing a judge because the matter had been resolved. He is still in jail missing work for nothing the judge has been out all week. The whole thing is quite a mess but his PO is doing all she can to get him out so he won't lose his job.
My question is, IS this true even though the judge has a hold on him (can't be released til seen), he can still be let go?? Since there is no longer a case to review its been resolved because no more money is owed.
