Need Help Getting Out of Jail?
People arrested in Torrance are booked at the Torrance City Jail, where they are generally held until their arraignment. If inmates have not bonded out or released after their arraignment, they most likely will be transferred to one of the LA County jails.
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.
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 our specialties is early intervention. Seppi Esfandi is a 16 year expert at contacting the prosecution and convincing them that there is insufficient evidence to successfully prosecute. By utilizing our early intervention expertise, it’s possible to have a case dismissed without any effect on your 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 Torrance, and throughout Los Angeles County.
