They’ll put you in a holding cell. When the jail is busy, you will have to wait, sometimes for many hours, before you get processed.
The first thing you will have to to is you have to answer some questions, such as your full name, your address, birthdate and a contact person, and they’ll also ask about your mental and medical history. Next, you’ll be given an inmate ID and you will get fingerprinted. Then, any personal property you have will get taken away from you and stored until you get discharged from jail.
They will allow you to use the telephone so you can talk to a member of your family, friend, or somebody else who can help you get out.
If they expect that you will make bail and be released quickly, you will be allowed to skip the jumpsuit and keep wearing your own clothes, if not you will be issued a jail uniform.
When you finally post bail, you will be allowed to go home after you get discharged. Getting discharged can take between 15 minutes to all day. So, the faster you can post bail, the faster you will get discharged from jail. How quickly you get discharged can depend on whether or not you’ve got a cash bond or if the judge needs to figure out how much to set your bail at. For lesser charges, you will get booked and get released without having to post bail. If you have served a sentence in jail and are given a discharge date, expect to get discharged at any time that day – but usually in the morning.
