If you ever find yourself in a position where you’re being taken into custody, you’ll want to keep the following things in mind while you’re in jail.
- Don’t discuss the details of your case with anyone. When you’re being booked the jailer will ask you to provide basic information, such as your full name, address, date of birth and social security number. This type of information is OK to provide. However, if the jailer or any other inmates ask you to discuss your case, you’ll want to remember that anything you say can and will be used against you in court.
- Don’t be overly friendly, but don’t be rude. When you’re in jail, you’re not there to make friends. Try to keep a low profile and don’t talk about anything that could be controversial including politics, race or religion.
- Contact a bondman as soon as you can. The sooner you can speak with a local bail bonds company, the faster you’ll be able to get out of jail.
