Bench Warrants and Arrest Warrants in Los Angeles
Both bench and arrest warrants are very serious. Either may result in immediate arrest, meaning you will be taken into police custody and will likely face criminal charges, have to post bail for your release or face other serious legal action. Rather than ignore the situation, it is absolutely crucial that you consult a lawyer as soon as possible to discuss your situation. A lawyer can look over the circumstances of your bench warrant or arrest warrant and determine what can be done to help. While you may need to appear in court, with a defense attorney at your side your chances of avoiding arrest or serious criminal charges is much greater.
A bench warrant is most often issued for a failure to appear in court or other violation of court orders. This may include failure to pay a fine, failure to pay child support or failure to complete a court-ordered sentence (such as counseling or rehabilitation).
An arrest warrant is issued when law enforcement has probable cause to believe that a person has committed a criminal offense
