What happens at the jail after you're arrested?

Your son or daughter, or some other family member just got arrested. If you've never been arrested or gone through the process yourself, you worry about what happens. All sorts of things probably go through your mind, such as:

  • will they be put in a cell with murderers and sex offenders?
  • when will they get to make a call?
  • how long are they going to be in there?
  • will they be able to get out?

In this video, we walk you the process and explain what happens from the time they are taken in until they are released. I can't make the wait any shorter, but hopefully, it will be a little easier knowing what is happening.
