Facing Potential Arrest: is there a bench warrant in your name?
If you believe that there is a bench warrant with your name on it, you can take necessary action to avoid arrest. A bench warrant is usually issued after a failure to follow a preliminary court order. You may have failed to appear in court, failed to pay a fine, or failed to appear for a sentencing hearing. In any case, it is important to protect your rights if there is a bench warrant in your name. As your legal representatives, we will seek a voluntary arrangement for you to appear without being arrested. Making an appearance without an attorney could result in your arrest and the necessity to post bail money.
Why is there a bench warrant?
A warrant can be issued by the court for any number of reasons, including:
- Failure to appear at a court date
- Violation of probation or parole
- Issuance of a warrant complaint based on probable cause to believe that a criminal or serious motor vehicle violation has been committed
- There is reason to believe that the defendant is dangerous to himself, others or property
Protect Your Rights: Remain Silent If You Do Not Have An Attorney
Whether you are confiding with a friend or are facing questions by an officer, you should not make any statements without first consulting with an attorney. If you have been arrested, you are not obligated to make any statements about your case. Before consulting with an attorney, you should avoid making statements to officers, prosecutors, or the court to protect your rights and interests.
