Once a person has been arrested, they will be booked and processed. The normal Los Angeles booking and intake process can take two to four hours. During booking the defendant's identity will be verified. They will be finger printed and a mug shot will be taken. The charges will be filed and they will be put into a holding cell or released into the general population. If bond has been posted, the release process will begin. The size of the jail, number of staff on hand, time of day, and the amount of traffic through the jail will determine the amount of time it takes for a defendant to be released. This can take anywhere from 2 to 12 hours.
