If you find yourself in the Travis County Jail or if you are concerned a family member might be in custody, we understand you may be feeling confused, especially if this is a first offense. Here is a guide to understanding the process of getting out of jail.
After arrest, a suspect will be taken into police custody at the jail. There, he or she will be booked, a process that includes collecting information about the suspect, documentation concerning the alleged crime and a background check revealing a suspect’s previous arrests. Police will take fingerprints and photographs, confiscate personal items and place the suspect in a holding cell or local cell.
We get this question a lot. Unfortunately, there is no set amount of time a suspect may be held. It depends on how long booking takes, which varies based on how many other arrests have occurred at that time, and how slowly or quickly the suspect’s documentation is completed. A bond amount could be set in a few hours after arrest or possibly the next day.
A suspect is usually in jail for a minimum of six hours before he or she can be released. It also takes four to six hours for someone to be released after the judge signs the bond and the lawyer turns it into Travis County Central Booking. This may seem daunting, however it’s much faster with a lawyer than if the suspect tries to achieve release on his or her own.
An experienced lawyer is a fast pass to get a suspect out of jail. Licensed Texas attorneys can meet with their client in jail, collect the findings of background checks, handle paperwork for the bond, and swiftly set up face-to-face time with a judge to set the bond amount.
It depends on the case. If a client has a record of previous arrests, domestic violence, or felonies, the fee will be higher because it will be more challenging to achieve a release versus representing a client who has been arrested for the first time.
When you call us for your free consultation, we’ll be upfront about the amount of your potential fee. In most cases, we apply the fee as a retainer for Ken Gibson’s services representing the suspect later for trial. We accept all major credit cards over the phone.
