Surrender and Arrest Warrants

Surrender and Arrest Warrants – What To Do?

A court can issue a warrant for a variety of reasons. If the police have enough evidence that you or someone you love has committed a crime, they can request that the court issue an arrest warrant. Once you are in custody, you can be held without bail until an arraignment, release hearing, or similar proceeding.

Bench warrants are most commonly issued for those who fail to appear in court, pay child support, violate probation, or fail to pay a fine, perform community service, or complete some other action ordered by the court. If you are picked up on a bench warrant, you can also be held in jail until there is a hearing on your case, or you may be required to post bail and pay court fees.

For minor criminal charges or traffic tickets, you may receive a summons in the mail to appear in court. If you miss your court date, the judge can issue a bench warrant for your arrest. The police can then take you into custody at any time wherever they find you – at a routine traffic stop, at home, or at your job or place of business. If you have an outstanding warrant for your arrest, you need to take action and consult a lawyer immediately.

Indianapolis Criminal Defense Attorney, Bryan L. Cook, has over 18 years of experience handling arrest warrants in the State of Indiana. He thoroughly understands the law regarding failure to appear, and can work with you to resolve a warrant before your arrest and advise you on how to proceed. Other alternatives may be available to you instead of going directly to jail, such as:

– The court might be willing to schedule a hearing to address a bench warrant before an arrest occurs.

– Arrangements could be made for you to turn yourself in at the booking area of the jail, instead of being picked up by police.

– The court might allow you to appear at an arraignment rather than be taken into custody.

If you know you missed a court appearance or discover that a court has issued a warrant for your arrest, you need to take immediate action. You need proven, experienced legal representation at your side to protect your freedom. In addition to being arrested, the court can take other actions if you fail to make a court appearance. You could possibly have your driver’s license temporarily suspended, pay fines, or serve jail time if you are found guilty of contempt of court.

Don’t wait and worry when you may be taken into custody. Call attorney Bryan L. Cook now for a free and confidential consultation to find out how you might be able to resolve your warrant without being forcibly removed from your home or place of employment.
