Warrants

Just because you have a warrant out for your arrest doesn’t necessarily mean the authorities are looking for you to take you into custody. Just like there are multiple reasons why you may be issued a warrant, there are also multiple types of warrants. You can have a bench warrant which means police officers will not come looking for you but will execute the warrant when they stop you for a routine traffic stop such as being on your cell phone, not wearing your seat belt, or even J-walking. Having a bodily warrant issued, means only one thing: law enforcement is actively searching for you to take you into custody. Warrants are usually placed for misdemeanor and felony matters which can be related to traffic offenses as well. One of the main reasons a warrant gets issued for your arrest is because you failed to comply with a court order or you violated your probation terms and conditions. Whether it’s a misdemeanor or a felony matter, being placed under arrest can be a very unpleasant experience to say the least. It is important to remember not answer any questions without your Attorney being present.
