If he has not done so already, your husband needs to file a request for disposition of all untried matters against him in Kentucky pursuant to the Interstate Agreement on Detainers
. Since he does not have an attorney, he can do this himself in the form of a letter to the court where his current charges are pending. If he has the case number, he should put that on his letter.
The time limits are that trial must be commenced within 120 days of his arrival in KY, unless continuances are granted for good cause.
The time limits if HE requests final disposition under the Interstate Agreement on Detainers is 180 days from his request. Therefore, the sooner he makes the request, the better.
