Based on a police investigation, it’s determined that there is enough evidence against you to justify filing charges and formally arresting you. This is a terrifying process that causes a great deal of stress for both you and your loved ones. At this point, it feels like your entire future has gone up in flames and you think that the only thing you have ahead of you is a jail cell.
The next step is getting booked. This happens before you’re put into a cell. This is when the booking officer takes down your important information, handles your fingerprints, and takes your mugshot. Depending on how busy it is, it could take hours to complete the booking process.
Once you’ve been booked, you’ll be placed into a cell.
For minor crimes, the bail is usually a predetermined amount that the booking officer can tell you about. However, for more serious offenses, or cases where there are multiple charges, you’ll probably have to go before a judge who will decide what a fair bail amount is.
If you can afford to post the bail yourself, you’ll post the entire amount and be released. If neither you nor any of your loved ones have the funds available, the best thing you can do is contact Palmdale Bail Bondsman & Bail Bonds. Consultations are available 24/7 and are an excellent source of information.
