Quick Overview Of What To Expect If You Are Ever Arrested

Ripon Bail Bonds

You may be able to talk your way out of a traffic ticket, but there is no such thing as talking your way out of an arrest. You can try, but it will not work. Never try to physically resist arrest, as that will only make the matter worse.

After you are arrested, you will be booked. This is where your fingerprints and mugshot will be taken, and you will change your clothes and relinquish the items that were on you during your arrest, among a few other routine procedures. After booking, you will wait a maximum of 2 days, in California, for your arraignment hearing, which is when the charges against you are formally announced and filed. The judge at the arraignment hearing will announce the bail you can pay in order to be released from jail during the duration of your trial.

A person may feel the moral obligation to report the crime, but they do not have a legal obligation to do so.


However, California does have mandatory reporting laws for certain people and situations. This applies to people in certain professions, like teachers, therapists, social workers, and medical professions, to name a few. If they suspect abuse against the people they are caring for, they are required to report this to the police.


Back to the general rule: if you are an ordinary citizen and you see someone stealing from a store, you are not required to report it...
