My sister was arrested about 30 minutes ago and we obviously want to get her out of jail as fast as we can. Can we have a bondman just meet us at the jail now?
On average, a Las Colinas Jail defendant will be in custody anywhere from 6-12 hours from the time they are placed in handcuffs until the time they are released from custody. When someone is arrested, they will need to be transported to the local jail. Once they arrive, the defendant will need to be booked into the system and checked for warrants. The warrant check, on average, takes anywhere from 4 to 6 hours to process after the defendant has their fingerprints taken. The jail will not allow anyone to post bail bonds until the warrant check results come back. When the bail bond is posted, it generally takes anywhere from 30 minutes to 6 hours for the jail to process the defendant’s release paperwork. At small jails this may happen very quickly whereas at larger, busier detention centers, this can take several hours.
