Hello,

You did the right thing here by contacting your son's attorney so that he could investigate what's going on with the appropriate people within the Department of Correction and address this matter for you. If your son is being wrongfully detained, the lawyer can bring a writ of Habeas Corpus. That would get your son before the state judge for the state to show why he was still being held or, if they had no reason to continue to hold him, to let him go.
