A common question people have is what is a bench warrant?
Answer: It is the most common type of judicial order in criminal Court. A
Burbank judge will usually issue one when someone fails to appear in
Court, does not comply with a term of probation, or doesn't pay a fine or
finish classes or community service. The amount of the bench warrant will
usually relate to the severity of the offense. Any law enforcement officer
can take a person into custody under the authority of such a judicial order.
In some cases the warrant is issued as a "no bail" order. This means if the
individual is arrested he or she cannot post a bail bond and be released.
If you believe there is an outstanding warrant for your arrest in Burbank
California you need to contact an experienced criminal attorney
immediately. You are at risk of being arrested and taken to jail at any time
the police choose to do so. A Lawyer can go to Court for you and have the
warrant recalled and quashed, often without the necessity of the client
appearing. Any unfinished probationary terms can be reinstated and the
individual's record can be cleaned up. Once the warrant has been cleared,
we can request the Court to notify the DMV and clear any hold on a
person's drivers license. The State of California Department of Justice will
also be notified to update a person's criminal record to reflect the clearance.
