If you failed to appear for court, it is likely a warrant has been issued for your arrest. You may find out by calling the clerk’s office, searching public records online or calling an experienced criminal defense attorney to research the issue for you. Often, especially on sale and possession cases, warrants may be issued for your arrest without your knowledge. Typically, these arrests do not happen at the time the crime took place because officers do not want to blow their covers.
You may turn yourself in so the warrant is executed. You may set a hearing and ask a judge to withdraw the warrant. It is highly recommended that you seek the advice of an experienced criminal defense attorney who can walk you through the process. If the warrant was issued for failing to appear for a scheduled court hearing, there may be a simple explanation for the failure to appear (FTA). If the warrant was issued for a new charge, you are best served to have an attorney present when turning yourself in because law enforcement officers can, and often times do, use this opportunity to question you about the offense(s).
You may have missed a court date, violated probation, or been accused of committing a new crime. An experienced attorney can determine the reason for the warrant and assist in having the warrant withdrawn or setting a reasonable bond.
You should arrange to turn yourself in or set a motion to withdraw a warrant. Contact our office to learn the best approach to resolve your outstanding warrant.
