Bench Warrants in Fort Worth

Fort Worth Defense Attorney

A bench warrant differs from a standard arrest warrant in that it is issued by a judge rather than the police, and is not always associated with criminal charges. It can be issued for conduct that occurs in a courtroom, civil matters, and also for failing to appear in court or ignoring a court summons. The warrant allows law enforcement officers to arrest the individual named at any time in any place, though such warrants are not often at the top of their priority list, unless the warrant is for a serious offense.

Failure to address a bench warrant in a timely fashion can lead to serious penalties, including heavy fines, jail time, or other consequences. Because of this, it is highly advised you contact an experienced Fort Worth criminal defense attorney right away if you have an outstanding bench warrant. They will be able to advise you as to how to proceed and may be able to get your warrant recalled.

What if I have an outstanding bench warrant?

Having an outstanding bench warrant can cause significant anxiety, confusion, and fear in an individual. The consequences of ignoring or failing to handle it can result in penalties far greater than would have been levied for the original offense.
