Bench Warrant Arrests and Failure to Appear

California Drunk Driving Defense Lawyers

Bench Warrant Arrests ● Failure to Appear

When a person is scheduled to appear in court, it is a requirement that they appear, not a request. Failure to appear for any court proceeding, including arraignment and sentencing, can result in the court issuing a bench warrant for your arrest. Failure to pay a fine can also result in a bench warrant. This warrant gives law enforcement the right to immediately arrest you and take you into custody. A bench warrant can result in harsher penalties than you faced originally. If you believe a bench warrant has been issued for your arrest in relation to DUI/DWI charges, get in touch with an experienced attorney as soon as possible.
