Case study: What can happen if you have an arrest warrant?

by | Aug 22, 2012 | Law Blog

What happens if you’re supposed to receive a letter for a court date and some how you miss it and now you have an arrest warrant, will the police try to find you or do they just put it on you and somehow try to catch you another way? Perhaps in a traffic stop?

Attorney Roe Response:

Unfortunately, this happens a lot. You should consult with counsel because depending on the offense, and the number of prior failures to appear, you might be taken into custody when you add yourself to the calendar to clear things up, even when acting in good faith. Cover all bases and be safe with counsel at your side.
