Arrested in Jefferson Parish?
The Marino Criminal Law firm annually makes over 500 criminal court appearances in the courtrooms of Jefferson Parish.
If you or someone you know has been arrested in Jefferson Parish you need to contact an attorney as soon as possible. Do not give any statements to the police without an attorney present. Once you are brought to the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center (JPCC), the first step is the booking process where you will be fingerprinted, photographed, and a criminal background check will be done. This process can take several hours depending on the jail.
After you have been booked, a bond can and will be set by a judge or criminal commissioner. Your attorney can get a bond set except after 10pm in the evening. Many people quickly contact a bail bondsman to post a bond, but a bail bondsman will charge you 12% of the total amount of the bond and this a non-refundable fee. Your attorney could secure your release without the necessity of paying a bail bondsman depending on the offense and the criminal history of the arrested person.
