What to Do After a Friend Has Been Arrested
Nobody wants to end up in jail, but the fact is that people make mistakes, and sometimes those mistakes can lead to trouble with the law. Dealing with a friend or loved one who has been arrested is a tough experience that requires quick action.
While every situation is different, here are three steps anyone can take to help out a friend in their time of need.
Stay Calm and Get All Relevant Information
While it is perfectly natural to be stressed and frustrated, getting angry over the phone will do very little good. Instead, speak calmly with the officer and get the specific charge(s) and the location where the friend or family member is being held.
Arrange for Bail
Once all the information has been obtained, contact a bail bondsman right away. Bail bondsmen are familiar with the process and can help friends and family members through the bail process as well as get information and push paperwork through faster than the average civilian.
Provide a Ride
After calling the bail bondsmen, go to the jail. After getting out of jail, a person often needs to see a friendly face more than anything. Being there with a cup of coffee and a smile can make all the difference in the world. It may not seem like a big step, but it will be greatly appreciated.
