After the Arrest process, a DUI suspect is usually taken into police custody and “booked” or “processed”. During “booking”, a police officer typically:
- Takes the criminal suspect’s personal information (i.e., name, date of birth, physical characteristics);
- Records information about the suspect’s alleged crime;
- Performs a record search of the suspect’s criminal background;
- Fingerprints, photographs, and searches the suspect;
- Confiscates any personal property carried by the suspect (i.e., keys, purse), to be returned upon the suspect’s release; and
- The Booking process normally happens at the local jail or the Collin County jail in McKinney.
For DUI suspects who are placed in jail, the first priority is usually getting out. A DUI suspect will usually be able to obtain pre-arraignment release through Bail or “Own Recognizance” Release.
In order to streamline the legal process and provide greater simplicity, Joseph Greco offers assistance with attorney bonds. Having an attorney take care of your bond, versus using a bail bond, will help reduce errors and lower costs. If a client uses Greco to post their bond and represent them in court, then one person handles the process from start to finish.
