Bonding Out of Jail

BOND PROCEDURES

So, a loved one has been arrested, now what? Of course, you should call a criminal lawyer, I recommend me, John Guidry. But, you want more info, RIGHT NOW, so here's what happens after an arrest.

FIRST: ARRIVAL AT THE JAIL. As you arrive at the jail, the arresting officer is completing his report, this takes 20-90 minutes.

SECOND: JAIL INVENTORIES PROPERTY / TAKES FINGERPRINTS / TAKES PHOTOGRAPH. This takes anywhere from 20 minutes to 2 hours

THIRD: FINGERPRINTS ARE SENT TO FDLE: Why? To see if you are who you say you are. This check can take 30 minutes to 4 hours.

FOURTH: WARRANT CHECK IS RUN. Done thru 2 systems, the Florida system and the National Crime Computer, and this can take anywhere from 10 minutes to 6 hours

FIFTH: WARRANT CHECK RETURNED

IF YOU COME BACK CLEAN, the jail supervisor will authorize your release, and this takes another 30 minutes to 3 hours.

IF YOU COME BACK DIRTY, and they find an active warrant, your bondsman or contact person will be provided the additional bond information, but the out of county response can take 2 - 4 hours!

There it is.
