The idea of being placed in handcuffs and transported to the nearest Riverside County Jail can be downright frightening. It’s normal to feel nervous and stressed, so you’ll want to make sure you do everything you can to make the booking process go as quickly as possible.
You’ll want to be cooperative with the person who is handling your paperwork at the jail. Don’t discuss any details of your case, but be sure to provide them the basics when you’re asked to give them your full name, address, date of birth and other types of information. When it’s time to be fingerprinted—cooperate.
Several months ago our office received a phone call from a defendant who was being held at the Robert Presley Detention Center. That person had arrived at the jail almost 12 hours before we got this call, but since they were difficult and uncooperative, the jailers hadn’t been able to book him. On a good day, the booking process can take between 4 and 6 hours; had this man been cooperative when he arrived he would have likely been able to post bail bonds, and be home by the time he contacted our office.
