Statistics show us that the number of arrests for DUI surge over the holidays, from Thanksgiving eve thru New Year’s Day. Theories vary as to why some believe it has to do with the increased efforts by law enforcement to crackdown on impaired drivers by establishing additional DUI checkpoints. Sometimes it’s simply a lapse of good judgment that results in an arrest. Whatever the case may be the end result can land you in jail and in need of help from a reliable bail bond agency that is available to take your call any time of day or night regardless of the season.
If you are arrested and charged with DUI the odds of bail being granted are on your side unless an injury to others or a history of repeat offenses is involved. If bail is set the judge will determine how much it will cost you to get out of jail. The amount will depend on several factors one of which is the report from the arresting officer. He’s also the one who could send you directly to detox or give the go-ahead for your car to be towed. It pays to be respectful to the arresting officer.
At the court arraignment, you will be informed of the charges that have been brought against you and asked to plead guilty or not guilty. If you plead not guilty a preliminary hearing date will be set and you will be required to appear then and for any other court procedures that may arise before the time of your trial.
There are often stipulations that apply to being released on bail after an arrest for DUI. It is likely that you will be required to undergo some sort of rehabilitation, either as an inpatient of a treatment facility or as part of a group therapy.
