Warrants & Bonds
Once a warrant is issued, you can be arrested at any time. In addition to an inevitable arrest, bench warrants also are often issued with a driver’s license suspension. Although this can be stressful, avoiding a warrant is never a good idea.
If you have an outstanding warrant, it’s important to contact an attorney to discuss your options. Warrants vary in type, but all can be tedious, and oftentimes a person is unaware they even have an open warrant.
- Arrest warrants: Issued by the police department, and can involve being charged with a crime.
- Bench warrants (or capias): Court ordered, usually for missing a court appearance.
An attorney can motion to have the capias warrant dismissed, or for an in-court surrender and potentially have you released on bond, or ROR’d (Released on own recognisance) without remaining in custody.
If a warrant pertains to certain crime, like a Probation Violation, it can be deemed ‘no bond.’ This means you will be held in jail until you appear before a judge. An attorney can motion the court to issue or set a bond, and avoid sitting in jail awaiting a court date. Your bond can be revoked if you are charged for another crime while out on bond, and an attorney can petition to reinstate it.
