Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
I have heard that many times people are given tickets for this. why would they have arrested her? unless she got nasty with the officer.
We live in New Jersey and she called us at 4:30 am. Is there any way we can find out where or what time she will go to court?
I did call and spoke to an officer at central booking. They still have her at the precinct, which is the 6th. She is also being charged with resisting arrest. Is there anything we can do if she is still at the station? The officer told me that she probably won't be arraigned until after 5pm.
Will someone have to be there if the judge sets bail? Will bail need to be posted for her to get out, or can they give her a fine?
Thank you so much. You have been very helpful.
