If the two cases are in the same county and if he/she was remanded on the first case he/she may get credit towards both cases. Also it the cases are in different counties and the county where the first offense occurred placed a hold on the person with the the jail where the person is being held he/she may get credit. You should pose this question to the person's attorney.
