A person who fails to appear in court as ordered and scheduled is issued an arrest warrant. A misdemeanor warrant is a court authorized document that commands state and local law enforcement to arrest an individual accused of a crime that was not necessarily witnessed by the police.
Examples of misdemeanor crimes that qualify for “Pay And Go” Service in Palm Beach County:
An arrest warrant is a document signed by a judge and issued to police demanding a person’s arrest after reasonable belief that the accused person committed a crime. The warrant is not released until a grand jury finds the person guilty and / or law enforcement performs a full investigation..
Unfortunately for the person accused, no actual notice is sent out to him or her about the warrant. Therefore, it’s not uncommon for the person to find out about a warrant for an arrest until coming into contact with a police officer. At that time, it’s too late. The accused is then arrested and taken to jail.
A bench warrant is usually issued after a ‘failure to appear’ (someone fails to appear at a scheduled court hearing or does not respond to a subpoena). The crime committed could be as simple as a speeding ticket. Regardless, a court date was ignored. The term evolved because the bench warrant is a result of the failure to comply with a written and court ordered command to sit on a bench in a court before a judge. Bench warrants are accompanied by a set bail amount and most likely time in jail until the new court date.
A ‘failure to appear’ for a serious crime will usually lead to an actual arrest warrant requiring the accused to spend time in jail. However, with a bench warrant, the circumstances are not as severe meaning the police are not going to literally go out and look for the person. Nonetheless, the person’s name will be entered into the state’s law enforcement database and if that person happens to come into contact with a police officer, the warrant will show up and instruct authorities to make an immediate arrest.
If you are fortunate enough to find out about an open bench warrant in Palm Beach before running into the police, you can resolve the requirements to remove a warrant without the embarrassment or time in jail.
