There are a number of reasons the court will issue a warrant. The most commonly issued warrant is a bench warrant. Some of the reasons for a bench warrant are:
- The defendant did not complete the assigned community service.
- The defendant did not pay the imposed fines.
- The defendant did not show up to their assigned court date.
If you think there is an outstanding warrant for your arrest you should contact Outlaw Legal Services right away. There is a chance that you could be arrested anytime and sent to jail.
The judge will sign the warrant requesting your arrest. The police will use the warrant to secure the defendant’s arrest.
