A warrant is a court order that allows law enforcement officers to arrest an individual. It often includes a name, address, date of birth and/or the charge(s) for which the person is being arrested. A warrant can be issued for a number of different reasons, including failing to appear in court for a case or failing to pay a fine.
It is important to check for warrants regularly, as they can be active anywhere in the country and could catch up with you if not turned in. You can do this by checking the sheriff’s office data base for your county or using a third party website that will search all state and counties. Some of these third party websites will charge a fee, while others are free to use.
A skilled criminal defense attorney can perform a more thorough search for warrants and may also be able to communicate directly with law enforcement or court personnel on your behalf to obtain accurate information. An experienced attorney can provide guidance and advice throughout the process and help you make wise decisions to avoid pitfalls. If you are facing a warrant, it is imperative to consult with an experienced attorney as soon as possible.
