A warrant is a document signed off by a judge, that allows a law enforcement officer to take a particular action. In the case of an arrest warrant, having one of these issued in your name is an automatic ticket to jail – Do Not Pass Go – Do Not Collect $200 – Go Directly To Jail!
A warrant can be placed against you for numerous reasons. The three most common types of warrants are: Search Warrants, Arrest Warrants, and Bench Warrants. We will go into more detail of each warrant type below.
A search warrant is an order signed by a judge that gives police officers the right to search for specified items at a specified location, and at a specified time. For example, a search warrant may allow the police to search “the entire premises of 123 Nice Street, between the hours of 7am and 10pm” to search for “narcotics, weapons, and cash”. The police department must follow this order exactly as prescribed or their evidence will be inadmissible in court. If you are served with a search warrant, it is important to carefully read the document Always keep in mind that the police can only search the premises listed on the order at the exact time. Usually, they can only seize the items listed on the warrant as well.
This is the most common type of active warrant. A bench warrant is placed on a person for a “non appearance”. If you are sent a notice to appear in court and don't show up, then you will have what is called a bench warrant placed against you. That is why it's so important not to ever miss a court date, no matter what the circumstances. A warrant is a problem that will haunt you until it's taken care of. Even worse yet, you can be charged with additional crimes such as “bail jumping”, even if bail was never set.
Depending upon the city that you live in, the clerk of court may mail a notice informing you of the outstanding warrant. In other cities, a police officer will simply arrive at your house without any notice to serve the warrant and take you into custody. You can do a search for bench warrants through the local county clerk's office. Outstanding bench warrants are also easily researched using private online searches.
If a person “jumps bond” and does not return to court after bailing out of jail, a bounty hunter will be hired to track them down. A bounty hunter is hired by the bail bondsmen to bring the fugitive into justice and reclaim the bond money from the clerk of court. While bounty hunters are not allowed to act as police officers, many have sneaky tactics that allow them to hunt down anyone and take them back to custody.
An arrest warrant can be placed on an individual if the police believe that a crime has been committed. The police must show a judge probable cause and evidence in order to have an arrest warrant placed against a person. Once signed by the judge, arrest warrants are maintained by your local police. An individual can research this information at the local police department for a small fee, but should do so with caution. Because most police departments require that you physically pick up the report, if an active warrant pops up on your record, you will risk immediate arrest.
You have a few options when checking on outstanding arrest warrants. You can make a visit to your local Sheriff's department and have a police officer search through their records. While, this may be risky, it is often free or for a nominal fee. Another strategy would be to do a personal background check on yourself online through a private resource. The benefit here is that you are able to discretely search your records and also avoid the hassle of visiting the sheriff’s office.
Every day, arrest warrants are placed on average, hard working people that are completely unaware of their plight. For example, Stephen Pisek of New York was arrested for discontinuing payment on a laptop that he was renting from a local rental center. To his surprise, the police came to his residence at 3 am and hauled him off to jail for a warrant that he was completely unaware of. After months of stress and expense, Mr. Piseck explains, “I wish that I had known about the warrant in advance so that I could have just paid for the laptop before this whole thing got out of hand.”. In the case of an arrest warrant, it is commonplace for the police to arrive at your home, place of work or the homes of friends and family. They will do whatever is necessary to apprehend you once an arrest warrant is filed.
Many individuals with an active arrest warrant or bench warrant on their file will be arrested on a minor traffic stop or unrelated incident. The most startling example of this can be seen in Oliver Dill's unfortunate experience.. He applied to work at McDonalds, and was taken into custody once a background check revealed an arrest warrant that was from seven years ago.
Yes, this is possible. The police have the right to come to your house at any time and take you to jail. They can also charge your friends and family with obstruction of justice if they assist you in avoiding the police. It is not uncommon for someone to have an outstanding warrant on their record without being aware of it.
More recently, there has been an increase of warrants placed on innocent individuals. Criminals can easily commit numerous crimes using your personal information, or use your information at a traffic stop and never appear for court. This will result in numerous criminal warrants placed against you. Victims of identity theft are often arrested, and forced to sit in a jail cell until the truth can be sorted out. This is a situation that no one wants to live though and the most difficult to prevent from occurring. The only way to prevent this is through doing regular background checks on yourself. If you discover that you are a victim of identity theft, you must contact an attorney as soon as possible.
If there is a possibility that you have an active warrant against you, there are a few important points to keep in mind to ensure that you move through this challenge as smoothly as possible. The first and most important tip to keep in mind is that the police are not your friends in this situation. Too many people make the mistake of directly asking a police officer, or having a friend ask a police officer only to be immediately arrested. This will put you in a position of weakness because you will not have the opportunity to speak with an attorney in advance, and you will be not allowed to bail out. Even worse, you will look unfavorably to the judge because the officer will put on your record that you were taken in involuntarily.
Unfortunately, arrest warrants, including bench warrants do not ever expire. There is no statute of limitations for these types of warrants in the United States. The only action that will clear a bench warrant is death or the defendant's appearance in the court that issued the warrant. In other words, active warrants stay active forever.
Option One - you can just wait and do absolutely nothing. If this is a warrant for a lower crime, there is a chance that local police enforcement will not come looking for you. However, you will always be looking over your shoulder and can be dragged to jail for a simple traffic stop. As described in the example above, you can even be arrested after providing information on a job application.
Option Two - Since a warrant never expires on it's own, we suggest a second option. Remember that having an outstanding warrant is a legal problem that will follow you until it's dealt with. That is why we recommend that you contact an attorney first and then present yourself in front of a judge. Never, under ANY circumstances turn yourself in directly to a police officer. If you and your attorney are able to present a reasonable case to the judge, there is a chance that they will remove the bond and allow you to have a trial at a later date.
Regardless of your choice, staying informed is crucial in any legal challenge. At the very least, you must first determine whether you have an active warrant against you. This can be done by searching through the records at your local Sheriff's department or by simply doing an online background check on yourself.
