How long can you be held on an arrest warrant before you see a judge?

Question Details:

My boyfriend was arrested last night on a warrant for not doing his community service. The officer said that he would probably see the judge on in a couple of days but when I called IRC they said that it "might" be much longer than that. How long can they make you wait before seeing a judge?
