Bench Warrant vs. Arrest Warrant
There are two types of warrants in Georgia: bench warrants and arrest warrants. A bench warrant comes from failing to appear in court at a scheduled date. If you miss a court date, a judge may issue a bench warrant for failing to appear on his or her bench. An arrest warrant comes from a law enforcement officer, not a judge, although a judge will need to sign off. An arrest warrant means the police have probable cause to believe you committed a crime. Both types of warrants give police officers the power to make arrests and bring the named party before a judge.
How to Check for Warrants
It is possible to check for warrants against your name ahead of time to potentially prevent an arrest. Once you learn of a warrant, you have the chance to turn yourself in rather than waiting for the police to place you under arrest. The best way to check for warrants is by contacting your county clerk’s office. Call the criminal court or sheriff’s department in your county and ask them to check the records for outstanding warrants against you. You could also hire an attorney to access county databases that are not available to the general public.
What to Do If You Have a Warrant
If you find out you have a bench or arrest warrant against you in Atlanta, take immediate action. Contact the court presiding over the warrant and arrange a time to come in for a hearing. You may be able to arrange to have a hearing or turn yourself in rather than being arrested. If you have a bench warrant, pay off the fines you owe to clear your name and erase the warrant. Visit our blog to learn more about settling a bench warrant without jail time. If you have an arrest warrant, hire a criminal defense lawyer to represent you during your arraignment hearing and future court dates. You will need a lawyer to help defend your side of the case and try to minimize the penalties you face if you committed the crime.
