Getting arrested is an anxious time for anybody. Knowing what to do next can be invaluable. When you find yourself if this stressful situation, dealing with bail bondsmen might seem overwhelming and understanding your rights might be something that you aren’t sure of. Ajua Bail Bonds is here to share some tips for those that find themselves unexpectedly getting arrested.
Have Important Phone Numbers Memorized
It is important to have a few key phone numbers memorized for these instances. The use of cellphones has made it easy to punch a phone number into your phone and forget about it after that. Having the phone numbers of the closest people to you memorized will make it easier for the bondsman that you are working with to do his or her job. We need to be able to contact someone on your behalf to work on getting you out of jail as soon as possible.
Know that All Calls in Jail are Recorded
It is pretty common knowledge that everybody gets to have their call after they are arrested. While you are on that call, don’t forget that everything you say while on the phone is getting recorded. This is not the time to go into any details about the nature of your arrest with anybody on the phone. When you do this, there are instances where people say things that incriminate them on the phone and make things worse for themselves. You should be sharing nothing but basic knowledge with that person you call. Remember that anything you say can be used in court against you. Share nothing outside of the time, what you are being accused of, where you are, and what the cost of bail is to get your released.
Don’t Talk to Other Inmates About Your Case
It might be tempting to converse with other inmates when you find yourself arrested. It might seem like they can relate with you on a level that other people might not be able to. Even though they might seem like good people that are truly concerned for you, they know the ins and outs of the criminal justice system. They have no allegiance to you and will stop and nothing to tell guards what they want to hear if it means making a deal on their end. These seemingly good people will turn on you in the split of a second.
Always Be Polite when Arrested
Even though getting arrested might be a frustrating time in your life, good behavior will go a long way. You will receive better treatment from guards and others in jail when you are polite and cordial. Don’t give anybody any reason to find you threatening as this will make your situation worse than it already is.
