Hi guys,

Any advice or help appreciated.

At 4:27am my incredibly stupid girlfriend was pulled over and taken to Clark County Detention Center, NV for being above the alcohol limit.

She has been booked into the facility officially. Next to her Scheduled Action it says 48-MISD-HEARING. Scheduled date 02/13/13.

Can somebody talk me through the process of what happens now with regards to a court date?

When will she be let out?

What are her possible outcomes of her hearing?

Her bail is $6,000 in total which I simply cannot pay right now.

It is her first time offence and she owns and is insured on the vehicle it happened in.

Thanks in advance.

:-(

This covers the basics of the process, but is not exhaustive and the exact process varies by jurisdiction:

You can contact a bail bonds man and see if you can pay them to cover your girl's bail (obviously she will need to show up on time.)

If you can't cover it, it should be discussed at the initial hearing and the judge might release her or lower the bail.
