What is a warrant out for your arrest?
We’ve gotten a few calls in reference to folks that have applied for jobs or received letters in the mail regarding warrants being outstanding for their arrest. A warrant while it sounds like a really scary thing, but basically, a warrant is the judge wants to see you. That’s all it is. The judge is telling the law enforcement official get this person and bring them to me. They’ve been charged with a crime. Bring them into custody so that they can be arraigned on those charges. While it’s a scary thing, it’s not something that you should panic about up front. You can’t outrun a warrant. At some point, they’re going to find you. They’re going to hunt you down. You don’t want to deal with being extradited back in because you fled to another state.
The easiest thing you can do if you got a warrant for your arrest is, one, you can go down to wherever the courthouse is that the warrant has been issued out of. Depending on what the warrant is for, put yourself on the calendar and come before the judge. That’s what the warrant means. The judge wants to see you about something. You’ve either been charged with a crime or something, and the judge needs to speak with you, so call the courthouse, put yourself on the calendar, or talk to the clerk there, the deputy clerk. They’ll tell you what you exactly can do, or you can take yourself down to the police department and turn yourself in there. They’ll take you through the booking process, book you, send you to jail. Within a certain amount of time, they have to get you in front of a judge, but the one thing that you don’t do is run away from the warrant.
You evading the warrant is not going to make the warrant go away. The best thing you can do if there’s a criminal warrant out for your arrest is face it head on, deal with it, and get it taken care of.
