35 don't be such a judgmental idiot. If OP is just getting the "one phone call" now, then the person is just now in jail. One is given the phone call right when they are arrested and are getting booked in. The whole point of that call is to let someone (family or friends of the offender) know about the situation, and to get bailed out. That means that this crime was just now committed, and there might not be priors. Could be a DUI or anything, even some traffic violations will get you arrested. Also, it would be the local jail not prison. Prison is after sentencing, for long periods of incarceration. Also, it's people like you who make it so hard for convicts to turn their lives around. What a bitch.
