Failing to Appear in Court After You Have Received a Summons, Ticket or Other Court-Ordered Request Could Lead to The Issuance of A Bench Warrant for Your Arrest
Nov. 2, 2021
Failing to appear in court after you have received a summons, ticket or other court-ordered request could lead to the issuance of a bench warrant for your arrest. Similarly, if you have been charged with a misdemeanor, felony, or you have violated the terms of your parole, a judge may issue a bench warrant authorizing your arrest. Now, while you should be informed anytime a bench warrant has been issued for your arrest, this will not always be the case. You may not become aware of a bench warrant until it is too late and you have been placed under arrest.
