Worried About a Bench Warrant?
A bench warrant is a kind of warrant that a California judge can issue against a defendant in a criminal case or another court proceeding. Judges can issue a bench warrant—sometimes called a ‘body attachment’—when a defendant fails to show up to mandated court proceedings, or violates rules of court.
Bench warrants are not something to take lightly. Being arrested on a bench warrant could raise your bail, subject you to an ankle monitor or house arrest, or even cause you to forfeit the chance to be out on bail entirely while awaiting trial. In fact, bench warrants may give police the authority to arrest you on sight and take you to jail immediately. If you’re worried about a bench warrant or any other criminal defense matter, it’s important to reach out to us. Our dedicated Southern California criminal defense attorney can help you determine if you are subject to a warrant, and how best to respond to it. Your future matters too much to leave to chance.
