Hello there --
In an extradition case like this, there is generally never any bail set and your friend must wait in WA until the CA authorities come up to pick him up. Depending upon schedules, that could take anywhere from a week to a month (but he does get credit for any time served on the sentences). Once back in CA, the court might set bail depending upon the charges against your friend -- otherwise he must stay in jail until his trial date is set and the trial complete. If he is found guilty he will then be transported back to WA to face any remaining charges up there and if those charges have already been taken care of then he will stay in CA to begin his sentence if ther is jail time involved.
