Need Help Getting Out of Jail?
When someone has been arrested in the city South Gate, it’s important to note that sometimes inmates are transferred to the Men’s Central Jail or the Twin Towers Facility in Downtown Los Angeles.
After being booked you will be required to make a court appearance. If the incident was a serious felony then you will likely appear before a judge for arraignment within 48-hours of being booked. If the incident was a minor crime like a misdemeanor then you will likely be arraigned within 2 to 3 weeks.
For more information, please visit our page How to Get Someone Out of Jail in South Gate.
At your arraignment you will be informed of the charges against you and will be asked enter a plea of either: guilty, not guilty, or no contest. During arraignment the judge will also determine the specifics of your bail, or grant you permission to leave on your own recognizance.
Following your arraignment you will be asked to appear at a later date. The second meeting will be the Pretrial Conference. During this meeting your criminal defense lawyer will discuss the details of your case with the district attorney in an attempt to resolve the issue without going to trial. If a deal can be struck then your sentencing will commence. On the other hand, if the two sides cannot come to a ‘deal’ then your case will go to trial.
One of Mr. Esfandi’s specialties is early intervention. Early intervention refers to the time between a defendant being arrested and their charges being filed. Seppi Esfandi is an expert at contacting the prosecuting agency and convincing them that there is insufficient evidence to successfully prosecute. By utilizing an early intervention expert, it’s possible to have a case dismissed without any effect on one’s criminal record.
A criminal arrest is not something you should or can take lightly. Not only do you stand to face a number of legal penalties, but you could also face other consequences as well. We represent people accused of misdemeanors, felonies and infractions in South Gate, and throughout Los Angeles County.
