Information on State Warrants and Federal Warrants

They can mandate that a person be arrested and detained without delay.

Arrest Warrants

A state judge may grant a state arrest warrant against an individual, which allows law enforcement to arrest that person if they are being charged with a state crime or are being investigated for involvement in a state crime.

Similarly, a federal arrest warrant means that a federal judge has authorized law enforcement to arrest someone who has been charged with a federal crime or who is suspected of being involved in a federal crime.

In the event that you have an outstanding state or federal warrant for your arrest, it is in your best interest to seek the help of an attorney as soon as possible.

Bench Warrants

A bench warrant may have been issued against you if you failed to comply with a court order (such as an order to appear at a court date), and can result in your immediate arrest by law enforcement officials. A skilled defense lawyer can help advocate for you and fight for your best interests if you are being held in contempt of court.

Bench warrants can also include arrest, as well as the following possible consequences:

  • Drivers' license suspension by the DMV if you fail to appear in court for a traffic offense
  • Denying of bail if you have failed to appear in court on multiple occasions
  • Lengthy jail sentences

An attorney can provide you with a strong chance of avoiding these penalties, by seeking to have the warrant cancelled, or fighting for a reasonable bail in your case.

Contact Attorney Leonard Matsuk immediately if you have an outstanding state or federal warrant for your arrest.
