OUT OF CUSTODY OR GENERAL RELEASE can anyone tell me what this means
My b/f is/was being extradited to Kentucky from California. I find him on the "vine" website as being in Christian County Ky last night. Now it says OUT OF CUSTODY reason GENERAL RELEASE. My question is what does GENERAL RELEASE mean?

Reason: retitle thread
It means that he no longer has a institution number. When my man got transferred it said he was released. I was freakin out. But what it really meant he was released from one prison to the other. So he probably is in holding at another facility.

I doubt if he has been released after going to the trouble of extraditing him from California. Perhaps he has gone to the Assessment Center to determine where/if he will serve time.
Have you checked the DOC site to see what it is saying? However, the DOC site is not updated with any regularity. If you do find him on there though, you could call the institution and perhaps they would tell you if he is still there or where he has been transferred to. Hope you can get your answer.
If he was extradited to face other charges, it probably means he was released into the custody of the other jurisdiction and is now in jail in that jurisdiction awaiting trial on the charges there. That's what the term "extradition" usually means, I think. If he had already been tried and convicted in that other jurisdiction, I don't think they'd use that term. I'm sure I could be wrong, though. I'm just going by the context I've always seen the term "extradition" used in. I'm sure someone will be along sooner or later who can clarify it better.
