Person not indited in 90 days. Can parole hold be lifted?

My husband was arrested on May 17th for a DWI at the Cooke County jail in Texas. He is currently in jail still,, with a parole hold, but has not been indited yet. Its been almost 90 days. If they don't indite him by the 90 days, can that parole hold be lifted? Can my husband get out on a PR bond?He has a court appointed lawyer. She says she has nothing to do with parole, and that since it's a felony DWI, he will get 25 to life. I don't think that sounds right, and he has cell mates getting released off of their parole holds.
