What is a bench warrant?
It is understandable that people may have to miss court. Some people forget that they have a court date and others just don’t understand what it means when a police officer tells them they must appear in court or pay a fine by a certain date. While these are valid excuses and may be considered by a judge it will not stop a judge from issuing a bench warrant if you fail to appear. Once a bench warrant is issued, or if you realize you missed your court date, you should contact a warrant defense lawyer immediately.

Arrest warrants can be requested by the District Attorney if the DA knows they are going to file a criminal complaint against you. Police can request an arrest warrant if they can convince a judge that you have committed a crime.

If you are arrested on an arrest warrant it is critical that you inform the police that you are invoking your Fifth Amendment right to remain silent, and not say another word about your case.
