Arrested: What to Do When Your Loved One's in Jail By Wes Denham Cover Image


When family members or loved ones are arrested, things get crazy fast. Inmates want bail bonds and private attorneys, food from the commissary, healthcare and prescription drugs. They want someone to prove, somehow, that witnesses were lying or that police reports were incorrect. Lawyers and bail bondsmen appear, as if by magic, with hands held out for money, and are followed by jail fees, arrest fees, jail phone charges, commissary fees, probation fees, class fees, drug test fees, and on and on.  What to do?  Arrested is the only guide to supporting family members facing criminal charges. It explains how to make decisions that are in the best interests of the entire family—not just the defendant—and provides checklists of what things to do, and in what order. Form letters called “jail mail” are included to help readers quickly send important information to inmates.  Whether a defendant is charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct or first-degree murder, Arrested is an indispensible book.
