They may be able to charge him, but if he does not have herpes and they have no DNA and no witnesses to them having sex, they cannot convict him.

Unfortunately, he did something he was not supposed to do, whether he was guilty or not, he should not have left the state and he should not have failed to appear and for those two things that is why he is being punished by being held. He will be held until TN goes and gets him from NE and there is nothing you can do about that now. He should not have left the state and he should have appeared in court as ordered.

You must get him an attorney in TN in the county where he is being charged and if you cannot afford one, you need to contact the public defender's office there, because he is entitled to one to represent him for no charge.

Also, in Nebraska, he is entitled to a public defender and they can seek a hearing in court for him to waive his rights to fight extradition and agree to voluntarily return to TN and that can speed up the process of his return to TN.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
