The first thing that will happen is the arresting law enforcement agency will transport the defendant to the local police station jail or the County Jail for processing and booking into the jail system.

This process can take anywhere from 1 to 4  hours or more to complete, depending on the facility and the jail staff. Once the booking process is complete, a bail amount will be set if the defendant is not released on O.R. (own recognizance), or Citation Release (cited out). If bail is set, we can provide that amount for you.
