If you are arrested for DUI, expect to be booked and to spend a little bit of time in jail (no more than two days, and more often than not less than this). If you do not injure anyone or damage anyone's property in the process of committing your DUI, you will not likely be sentenced to any jail time. More likely than not, you will have your license suspended and will have to pay fines, possibly even perform community service. If this is not your first DUI, or you have had trouble with the law before, you will be facing a harsher sentence than someone who is charged with their first DUI.
In order to get out of jail and await your court date for the DUI charge, you will need to be bailed out of jail, or bail yourself out. How much the amount of bail depends on how clean your criminal record is, how high your blood alcohol content was, and whether anyone or any property was harmed during the course of your DUI. Again, if this is your first offense and your criminal record is spotless, you may not even have to post any bail; the judge may release you outright until your court appearance.
If you can't pay the amount of bail that the judge has set, you have a few options. You can ask a friend or family member for help, as you don't need to be the one to pay the bail. If this isn't a viable choice for you, consider contacting a bail bondsman or someone who will put up the money for your bail in exchange for a small fee, typically 15% of the amount of bail. In larger cities, many bail bonds agencies are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. In smaller cities and towns, you will still be able to find a bail bondsman, but you may need to search a bit harder. The Internet is also a treasure trove of a bail bondsman, so if you cannot for whatever reason locate a bail bonds agency in your phone book, consider looking online in order to find a local agency. Your bail will be returned to you if you make all of your court appearances, and you will be glad of that as you most likely will have to pay some steep fines if you are found guilty of DUI.
