You will get put in a holding cell. If the jail is busy, it will take a while to get processed.
First you have to answer a bunch of questions, like what is your full legal name, address, birth date and a contact person, and also, you will also be asked about your medical and mental history. Next, you will be issued an inmate number and you will get fingerprinted. Then, all personal property will get taken away from you and stored until you get released.
They will allow you to make a phone call in order to contact family, friends, or loved one.
If they expect that you will make bail and be released quickly, you might be able to keep wearing street clothes, but if you are not expected to make bail quickly you you will have to change into a jail uniform – the jumpsuit.
Once you are able to post bail, you will get discharged from jail. This process may take from 15 minutes to many hours. So, the faster you can post bail, the faster you can get out of jail. It also depends on if you’ve got a cash bond or if a magistrate still needs to decide on how much your bail will be.

When you have served your sentence and know the release date, you should expect to get discharged at any time that day – but usually in the morning.

You may be required to be on the inmate’s visitation list in order to send them money, and be aware that they may have a limit on how much you deposit at one time, like $200-300 at a time, or a limit on how much money may be in the inmate’s account at one time.
Some of the money transfer firms being used by various facilities include JPay, MoneyGram, AccessCorrections, OffenderConnect, Touchpayonline, JailATM, WU, smartdeposit, and tigercommissary.
If an inmate has fines or are required to pay restitution then they will be subject to garnishment of their commissary/trust account. If the inmate has a garnishment, then money to pay them will be taken from the inmateâ€™s bank account. In some cases it may be a percentage or the entire amount of the obligation, but the actual percentage depends on the circumstances. We recommend that inmates talk to the counselor at their facility and try to find out. You can also try to make an arrangement so that only a percentage of your commissary funds are taken, instead of all your funds take at one time.
