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.

emotional strain that comes with the threat of being arrested, and can
increase one's chances of avoiding the consequences attendant to an
