When you are arrested for DWI, it can be one of the most intimidating and scary times in your life. As a seasoned Collin County DWI attorney, I know how overwhelming it can be to think of the implications of your charges and the effects they may have on your future. However, it is important to remember that just because you have been arrested and charged, doesn't mean you are guilty. When you work with my firm, you can be confident that your case is in capable and experienced hands.

The more you understand the DWI booking and bail process, the more effectively you will be able to navigate each step and protect your rights along the way. I am here to provide the guidance you need should you be facing DWI charges, so do not hesitate to contact my firm for more in depth legal counsel and support.

What will happen in the booking and bail process?

After the arrest process, you will likely be taken into police custody so that you can be booked, or processed. During this time, police officers will typically perform several different steps.

These steps may include the following depending on your case:

  • Collecting your personal information, such as name, DOB, and address
  • Recording all important facts of your DWI offense
  • Investigating your criminal background for past charges
  • Taking your fingerprints, photograph, and performing a routine search
  • Confiscating any personal property, such as keys, phone, or wallet until your release
  • Placing you in a holding cell or local jail

Once you have gone through this process, you then be facing one of two options: stay in jail or try to post bail. In DWI cases, pre-arraignment releases are often available. This is the bail process where you (or a loved one) will need to pay money in exchange for your release from custody. You will have to appear in court for your scheduled arraignment, preliminary hearing, and the actual trial in order to obtain your bail back and avoid increased penalties.

If you have a criminal background, such as previous DUI convictions, the judge may decide to prevent you from posting bail until a further date or at a separate hearing. This may also mean that your bail amount will be higher than typical for a DWI case. If you cannot afford to pay the bail, you can obtain a bail bond, which is an agreement with a bail bondsmen that essential means you will pay the full amount (or the person vouching for you) if you do not show up to your required court dates. There are often some fees and required collateral involved with bail bonds.
