The pain of a DWI arrest begins immediately. A weekend arrest can mean that you sit in a jail cell – unable to post bail – until Monday morning. Often the bail is not set, and you are just waiting for a hearing. An arrest during the work week can mean spending two or more days in jail before you get your first hearing with a judge. In some cases, an arrest can lead to being held in a secured detox facility for at least 72 hours.
Meanwhile, your job and your family are left waiting for you, often wondering how to get you out. If your friend or loved one is in jail waiting for bail to be set…call a lawyer now. At The Law Office of Jennifer Pradt we are ready on the weekend to help you and your family.
When you or a loved one is being held in detox, we can file a writ to have them immediately released . . . even on a weekend. If someone is being held in jail waiting for a bail, we can contact a judge and, in some cases, either get them released outright, or at least get bail set so that they can go home.
Sitting in jail for up to three days when you are under arrest for DWI can be prevented, as long as you know what to do and how to properly do it. Call 651-235-6280 for a consultation and help getting released.
