Yes, you do get a phone call from jail. Watch below to learn more from attorney Darren Kavinoky.

A Phone Call from Jail

Arrest procedures vary state by state and even county by county. The one thing that remains the same in each arrest is that those under arrest do not have a lot of amenities.

Consequently, a person under arrest has just one phone call from jail. This is normally to call a friend or relative let them know that they are in custody.

Sometimes law enforcement officers are little bit more flexible. There are examples here and there where people at the time of their arrest have access to their cell phone. Every once and a while, the arresting officer allows the person under arrest to a call. Generally speaking though, there really are not a lot of the creature comforts of regular life. When you’re under arrest, your life is not nearly as peachy.


An Attorney Will Fight for Your Rights

There are many chances for a person to find themselves under drunk-driving arrest. Perhaps your night went a little longer than you though and you drank more than you anticipated. The point is that a drunk-driving arrest can happen to almost anyone. A phone call from jail is best dialed to a California DUI attorney.
