When your loved one has been arrested

JBABB Law - Bail Bond

There is a certain sense of helplessness and emergency when you get that phone call from your loved one at the police station following their arrest. You have about a million questions to ask them, and yet your time is cut short. You want to do everything you can to help and protect them, but they are separated from you.

Though it may at first feel hopeless, there are plenty of ways to help your loved one from outside their jail cell following their arrest. 

Your first responsibility is to make sure that your loved one doesn’t feel alone or abandoned. More than likely, they are feeling a sense of panic and desperation, thusly providing love and reassurance is of the utmost importance. Though intangible, what you are providing here can make all the difference to the psyche of your loved one.

The second most important way to help your arrested loved one is to make sure they are ever mindful of their lack of privacy while in custody. When speaking to any officer or any other person at the police station or jail, anything that is said could be used against them in the court of law. This means that anything they say could substantially hurt their chances as a good, strong case. It’s important for you to remind them of this fact for the overall health of their case.

You should find them a great defense attorney. Do your research, but be prompt. There are numerous resources that can be used to find the right defense attorney, but it is my opinion that the perfect defense attorney should be reliable, affordable, and knowledgeable. Ideally, someone with intimate knowledge of the judges and prosecutors that your loved one may face. This is also of paramount importance because your loved one is permitted to speak to their attorney with total confidentiality and privilege. Handling the bail proceedings is also extremely important in order to hopefully get them out of jail as quickly as possible. There are full service law firms, such as Jailbug Bail Bond Lawyers that offer the bail bond services coupled with an adept defense. 

Should you know someone in a position to not be able to be bailed out, either at all or just for the time being, they will need funding while behind bars. You can give them money while they are in jail so that they can buy basic necessities such as soap, shampoo, a toothbrush, and other aspects of normal daily life.

As stated before, the love and support you can provide them while behind bars is really the most important thing. It is a terrifying experience to be in jail, and anything to ease that pain is extremely valuable. 

Also valuable is a strong, passionate defense, such as the defense provided by Jailbug -Bond Bail Attorneys in the Dallas Fort Worth area. Feel free to use us as a resource as soon as your need arises.
