What Happens When You Get Arrested?, Honolulu, Hawaii

If you’re arrested, you can expect to be taken to jail. How long you remain there depends in part on how quickly a bail bondsman can post bail for you. Here’s what happens after you are taken into custody.

4 Things That Happen After You’re Arrested

1. Receiving Miranda Rights 

Once law enforcement officers place you under arrest, they read you your Miranda rights. Under these rights, you can stay silent and have the right to an attorney. Keep in mind that anything you say can be used against you in court.

2. Searching You After Arrest

Law enforcement officers have the right to search you. If they find dangerous weapons or illegal substances, they will take them from your possession. If you were in a vehicle, they can search it and remove any items they deem suspicious or dangerous. Law enforcement officials will also make a written inventory of your property and return it when you’re released, except for items that are illegal or must be retained as evidence.

3. Booking Into Jail

4. Calling a Bail Bondsman

Once you’ve been booked and jailed, you want to make bail to regain your freedom. Generally, bail amounts are determined based on the charges; however, judges can increase or decrease amounts in individual cases. When you know the required amount, call a bail bondsman to arrange your release.
