The arrest and release process works a little different in each jurisdiction. The basic process in Indiana is as follows:
1. You are placed under arrest.
2. You are booked into a local jail.
3. A pre-established bail schedule is used to set your bond. This schedule is formulated by the local courts so you are able to post bail before actually appearing before a judge. The types of charges and even where you live can be taken into consideration. Out of state residents can be considered a greater risk for failure to appear.
4. If a surety bond is allowed a bail agent can post a surety bond on the defendant's behalf. The agent's company then takes responsibility for making sure they appear in court. This means ALL dates until the case is over. A bail agent CAN NOT POST A CASH BOND! A cash bond is paid directly to the jail. When posting a surety bond with a bail agent normally an "indemnitor" will be required to sign for financial responsibility. This can be a family member, employer or close friend. The "indemnitor" helps indemnify the surety against loss. It also provides a sense of responsibilty for the defendant since they know a family member or friend will bear the financial loss.
There can be exceptions to the above such as probation violations and serious assaults. Defendants can have "holds" placed on them that allow cooling off times or conditions when a judge wants the defendant to appear before him/her before they set bond. Many domestic arrests include "protective or no contact orders" if violated they will result in immediate arrest and usually being held without bond. Any OWI or DUI arrests will have an additional schedule that calculates when a defendants BAC (blood alcohol content) will be metabalized low enough to allow for a safe release. If the defendant is arrested on a warrant out of a different court jurisdiction he will be jailed in the arresting officers jail. Then normally transported back to the jail by the original law enforcement authorities and they will not tell you when that will happen for security reasons. This can take days.
