Is there a bench warrant that has been issued for your immediate arrest? If so, it is very important that you retain a criminal defense attorney that can properly defend your rights as soon as possible.
At the Hedding Law Firm. we have handled many bench warrant cases over the years with very satisfactory results. In California, a bench warrantis a court order from a judge asking for your immediate arrest for failure to follow court-ordered rules. It may be issued for a variety of reasons, some of which may include the failure to perform any of the following as ordered by the court:
- Failure to pay a fine
- Failure to pay restitution
- Failure to pay child support
- Failure to allow visitation
- Failure to appear for a court ordered hearing
- Failure to appear for a subpoena
- Failure to appear after an indictment
- Failure to appear to show progress or completion of community service
- Failure to attend a DUI Class
- Failure to appear for a citation given by a police officer
- Failure to appear after being released from custody and promising to appear
- Failure to appear for sentencing or conviction after trial or plea
Both state and federal court can issue a bench warrant for your immediate arrest by law enforcement, no questions asked. Once arrested, you would then need to attend a hearing in order to determine what penalties you should receive.
