3 Facts You Should Know if You're Jailed in Nebraska, Lincoln, Nebraska

Being accused of a crime is a terrifying experience for almost everyone, especially if this is your first time in jail. To make the situation more confusing, Nebraska has a unique justice system adhering to its own rules and procedures. Fortunately, a criminal defense attorney knows how to work this system to your benefit.

What Everyone Locked Up in Nebraska Should Know

1. There Is No Private Bail Bond System

criminal defenseUnlike almost every other state, Nebraska doesn’t have a private bail bond system. Instead, state law lets everyone apply for the opportunity to be released on their own recognizance. However, a judge may decide someone is a threat to the community or unlikely to appear in court. In those circumstances, they might still be able to secure their release by posting bail.

2. You Could Get Released in a Matter of Hours

Every court runs on a tight schedule. And since you don’t have to wait for a bail hearing for most misdemeanor and felony charges, a family or friend may be able to collect you almost immediately, though they can also be held legally responsible if you don't show up to court.

3. Talk to a Criminal Defense Attorney Immediately

Even minor charges can have a dramatic impact on your life, so speak to a criminal defense lawyer as soon as you get out of jail. If you can’t make bail or the court has decided you should stay in custody, you still have the right to consult with the attorney of your choice.
