Our Lawyers can go to Court for you in many cases to get the failure to
appear quashed. A Bench Warrant is a judicial order commanding law
enforcement to arrest and jail a person who fails to obey the orders of the
Court. Typical examples of why a warrant can be issued include: The
failure of a criminal defendant to appear in Court (FTA); Disobedience of
orders to pay fines and fees; Not complying with terms of probation such as
community service, Caltrans, and counseling programs.
Once a Bench Warrant is ordered it goes into a database available to all
police agencies. If the police stop a person with a warrant they will run a
record check which will invariably lead to the individual being taken into
custody. Bail will be set and the jailer will hold the person until they can be
brought to the Judge that ordered their arrest. There is an alternative, a
lawyer can be retained to clear the bench warrant and avoid an embarrassing
An arrest warrant can often linger for years before it is discovered and acted
upon. One common question asked of those who have a warrant for arrest
hanging over their head is: Doesn't a statute of limitations apply and nullify
an outstanding bench warrant? The answer to this question is generally no.
The reason that the statute of limitations does not eliminate an old warrant is
due to the fact that most are issued because the person was convicted
already and placed on probation. Once an adjudication of a criminal case
has occurred then the SOL no longer is applicable. In cases where the
suspect is never arrested or convicted but a criminal complaint was filed by
the District Attorney, there is a potential legal defense that can be asserted
called the " violation of speedy trial rights", however, this is a very
complicated motion and is only meritorious in very specific cases. A lawyer
should be consulted to determine if the law can be used in their specific case.
