Getting arrested can be a scary and confusing experience, especially if you’ve never been through it before. Even though each case is different, there is a general process that takes place after someone gets arrested. Understanding this process can help you know what to expect if you or a loved one ends up getting arrested.
An arrest happens when a police officer uses their authority to take away someone’s freedom to leave. This usually involves handcuffing the person and taking them into custody. An arrest is legal when the officer has probable cause to believe the person committed a crime.
Police don’t always need an arrest warrant to make an arrest. But they do need one if they are arresting someone in their home, unless it’s an emergency.
During the arrest, the police will search the person and confiscate any personal belongings, including their cell phone. Anything that could be evidence will be catalogued and kept by the police.
After arresting someone, the police will transport them to the nearest precinct or station. Sometimes they might go to the station where the alleged crime took place. The arrested person will be handcuffed during transport.
If the person was driving a car when they were arrested, the car will be towed or given to a passenger. The police will investigate who owns the car to return it later.
At the station, the arrested person will go through a booking process. This involves:
Officers will also document any injuries or medical conditions the person has. The arrestee’s personal belongings will be stored until they are released.
After booking, the person will either be held in jail until seeing a judge (“put through live”) or released with a desk appearance ticket (DAT). A DAT is like a ticket to appear in court later. It allows release rather than waiting in jail to see a judge.
Initial court appearances happen within 24 hours for people held in custody, or on a future date for those released on DATs. At this arraignment, a judge will:
If the person pleads guilty or no contest, sentencing may happen right away or at a later hearing. If they plead not guilty, a trial date will be set. The person will either be released on bail, held in jail until trial, or let go with a promise to return for court dates.
