Unfortunately, it really depends on which kind, or brand of bath salts he was using, for how long, and how much. In general, the withdrawal from bath salts can be very long... months. Some of these chemicals have "benzo" qualities, which can lead to seizures upon withdrawal. The "good" thing about your son's situation is that he's incarcerated and will have quick access to medical care if he gets really bad. There is always a chance of death when it comes to withdrawal of any kind. However if he was only using bath salts and is otherwise health and without illness, he will probably do fine in the long run... as long as he gets clean.
