Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

Whether a defendant is charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct or first-degree murder, this is an indispensable guide for those who want to support family members, partners, or friends facing criminal charges. Draining away the confusion by explaining legal proceedings and jail procedures, it identifies common bond scams and lawyer rip-offs and helps organize inmates to assist in their legal defense. In addition to the most common legal motions, challenges, and investigations, this resource also provides additional coverage on how to avoid fights, sex, gambling, and scams that can result in injury while in jail and cause additional criminal charges to be filed. Detailed budgeting forms to calculate the true, multiyear costs of legal defense--all the way through the years of probation, parole, and reentry into society--are also included.

About the Author

Wes Denham is the coauthor of Arrest-Proof Yourself. He has spent years interviewing men behind bars as an investigator and Spanish translator for a criminal defense law firm and writing family management plans for criminal defendants.
