The Law Offices of Al F. Amer represents those who have Bench Warrants in Santa Monica, Marina Del Rey, El Segundo, Manhattan Beach, and Hermosa Beach
A bench warrant is a court order that is issued after a person has failed to appear in court for proceedings, for an arraignment, or for a judgment. Once a bench warrant is issued for an individual, law enforcement has the right to arrest the person and bring him/her to court. After a bench warrant has been issued, a person can be placed under immediate arrest if he/she is caught by police officers. For this reason, simply ignoring a bench warrant is never a good idea. Instead, people should consult with a criminal defense attorney who can intervene on their behalf.
Has a Bench Warrant Been Issued for Your Arrest?
If a bench warrant has been issued in your name, now is the time to be proactive and to meet with an experienced criminal defense lawyer. You should know that if you choose to ignore your bench warrant, you may be subjected to enhanced legal penalties if law enforcement arrests you. Additionally, law enforcement has the right to arrest you any time, any place. Just imagine being at work or in front of your family when police show up and handcuff you.
Instead of trying to avoid your arrest, your best option is to work with a lawyer who can help you turn yourself into police. By turning yourself in and taking responsibility, you may be able to avoid incurring serious legal consequences, like jail time.
