Detention and Arrest Are Different

Detention in school was simply staying late one day, and sitting in room with a handful of other students, and a teacher, either doing homework or nothing at all. Detention outside of school, when you are an adult, is not quite the same. This is when you are briefly stopped by the police and/ or taken to their precinct. They have reasonable suspicion to stop and ask you a few questions, but if you are not being arrested, then you may leave.

If the officer’s reasonable suspicion grows to probable cause, then he or she may arrest you, and then you may not leave until you are booked, arraigned and allowed bail, and then post bail. Only when bail is posted may you leave, but because you were arrested, you will have to deal with lawyers and trials too...

How Long Is The Bail Process?

It can seem like forever for the one in jail, but the bail process is relatively short, so to speak. We mean hours, which as we said – relatively short, considering the situation.

The defendant won’t be able to bail out of jail until they are booked and arraigned, which happens as soon as possible after their arrest. They learn of their bail amount at their arraignment hearing. After that, they can post bail as soon as they can get the cash for it. Or, they can use a bail bond as soon as they can 1) get in touch with a bail bond agent, and 2) figure out the payment plan.

Really, getting a bail bond isn’t going to be too difficult; in fact, it will be an easier process than paying for cash bail because it’s more affordable to pay for...

There are different types of court, but here we focus on the Federal and State court systems. Most crimes are heard in state court. These are crimes we commonly, immediately think of (probably because we hear about them the most) such as arson, theft, rape, and murder, etc. These crimes are investigated by state agents such as local police officers and county sheriffs and tried by local and state attorneys.

The crimes that go to federal court are generally ones that are in regard to some federal or national issue such as federal tax fraud or cross-state trafficking of contraband. Federal crimes are investigated by federal officers like the FBI and CIA and tried by federal attorneys. Federal court cases generally take a longer time to resolve because of its complexity.
