This would probably depend on where I was when I got arrested, and possibly on why I’d been arrested.
In Seattle I’d probably call my sister. She also lives in the Seattle area, and I’d rely on her to call our mom and other family or friends as required.
If I was in Salt Lake City, or pretty much anywhere other than Seattle, I’d probably call my mom in SLC. I don’t know why that is, other than that I think parents tend to be better at dealing with things long-distance. Though so far as I know my parents have never arranged bail bonds nor legal services, locally or otherwise. So I don’t know why I think this.
Who would you call with your one phone call if arrested? (No lawyers!)
