If you have never been to jail before, posting bail may seem like a foreign process. You can handle yourself correctly in this situation by considering these tips.
Wait It Out
If your crime is not that severe, then it may be better to just wait it out and spend your time in jail overnight. You can bide your time and get released the next day. Then, you will have to meet with a judge at a future date, where your sentencing will begin. Crimes that are considered petty, such as public drunkenness or jaywalking, typically require spending a short amount of time in jail.
