When one promises to appear, or is ordered to appear in court and fails to do so, the court on its own may issue a warrant to bring that individual into the court. A person promises to appear when they sign a traffic ticket, or post bail. The failure to appear is a separate charge, and can be charged as either a misdemeanor or a felony.
A bench warrant can impact the lives of individuals as it can result in an immediate arrest, suspension of driving privileges, etc. Each court and individual judges have their own policies regarding the recall of a warrant. It is very important to have an attorney who understands these policies. The Law Offices of Benjamin Zicherman has extensive experience with recalling warrants.
