I Have a Warrant – What Should I Do?
An arrest warrant can be issued for a number of reasons, including new criminal charges, a probation violation allegation, or for a failure to appear in court. Whatever the reason, the warrant must be dealt with or else you could end up being arrested and taken to jail under very inconvenient circumstances, to say the least.
Contact an attorney immediately to discuss the specifics of your situation. It’s important to understand why the warrant was issued and if there is bail set on the warrant or if it’s a body-only warrant. If bail was set on the warrant, it’s possible you may be able to go post the bail amount, or post a bail bond, get booked, and then be on your way with a court date. But if the warrant is body-only, then you will need to turn yourself in to the jail and wait to be seen by a judge, who will determine bail and/or conditions of release.
