Bench Warrant Recalls
Let us help you get back on track after missing a court appearance
If you fail to appear in court as scheduled, the judge may hold you in contempt of court and issue a bench warrant for your arrest. You will typically receive notice of a bench warrant and an order to appear in court at a certain time. Failure to do so will give law enforcement the authority to arrest you.
After a bench warrant has been issued for your arrest, you need to understand what potential penalties you face and what you need to do to avoid those penalties. A bench warrant will not only land you in jail, it may strengthen the prosecutor’s case against you.
