In order to get Henry County to proceed with the case, they have to serve the warrant on him, which will then allow the case to move through the system. Usually for that to be done, one of the police officers has to physically take the warrant to the prison where he is currently incarcerated and serve the warrant. Otherwise, they won't serve him until he is transported back to their county pursuant to the detainer that is currently hanging over him. Unfortunately, there is not a lot that can be done other than asking that the police officer serves the warrant on him. The prosecutor's office is not usually involved yet at this stage since formal charges have not been filed so they are likely not able to help much. So he can try to contact the police department and notify them of his location to see if they will make an effort to serve the warrant to get the case moving to the charging phase. Once he is formally charged, they will issue a writ to transport him to Henry County to deal with the charges. If he had an attorney on the other charges, he can try to contact that attorney to see if they will make a phone call on his behalf to get the warrant served. Unfortunately, the case will be in a holding pattern until that warrant is served.
