Why do I have a warrant for my arrest?
First of all, it’s important to understand that there are two types of warrants:
The judge issues a warrant from the bench (hence, the name) if you have failed to appear in court or have failed to fulfill a court obligation, such as a post-conviction fine, community service or other probationary obligation. These warrants are very dangerous because they are entered into a law enforcement database to ensure that you are arrested the next time that you are pulled over in your vehicle or otherwise discovered. They can also carry a significant amount of bail which you will have to pay to be released.
When a law enforcement officer, detective or police agency has probable cause to believe that you have committed a crime, said officer, detective or agency will petition the court to issue a warrant for your arrest. Once the judge has issued the warrant, the police will then contact you to turn yourself in or will arrest you at your home, in your place of business or the next time you are pulled over in your vehicle or otherwise discovered.
What can your lawyers do to prevent me from being arrested on an outstanding warrant in Torrance, CA?
The Los Angeles criminal defense lawyers at Ernenwein & Mathes, LLP, will go to court with you, go to the clerk’s office and call up your case file to be heard by a judge. We will then motion the court to recall and quash the warrant; in other words, terminate the warrant pending your court proceedings. In doing so, you are relieved of the danger, humiliation and expense of being arrested.
In the event that the judge denies the motion, we can ask to continue further hearing on the matter until you can return with a bail bondsman to post bond before you enter custody.
