Help! A Family Member Has Been Arrested for Shoplifting! Now What!

You just heard that one of your family members has been arrested for shoplifting. Now you’re in a state of panic. You’re furious that they were accused of shoplifting, worried that they may have actually done it, and scared to death by the prospect of them spending one or more nights in jail.

The first thing you need to do is relax. You won’t do yourself, your newly arrested family member, or anyone else if you have an anxiety attack. Take a few deep breaths. Yes, the situation is bad but it’s not the end of the world.

At this point, there isn’t anything you can do about the charges. There will be time to deal with those later. Your first priority is getting your loved one out of jail. The good news is that this isn’t as complicated as you might think.

If this is the first time your family member has ever been arrested, it’s likely they’ll be released on their own recognizance, meaning that you won’t have to worry about bail. 

However, if your loved one has been arrested in the past, it’s likely that they’ll have to post bail. The best way to find out if they require bail and how much bail is by calling the jail.

Don’t assume that just because you’re broke and your loved one requires bail they’ll have to spend a great deal of time in a cell. All hope is not lost.
