An arrest warrant is a notice to law enforcement that you are to be arrested on the spot if stopped for any reason. This means that you could be arrested during a routine traffic stop, at the airport boarding a plane, or in any other situation where police have reason to check your identification. While an arrest warrant sounds serious, in many instances they can be easily cleared up. If you know you have a warrant out for your arrest, do not ignore the issue. The longer the warrant is outstanding the more serious of trouble you will be in. Contact our office today for assistance in clearing your warrant.
There are a number of reasons why a person may have an outstanding arrest warrant. Examples may include:
- Unpaid traffic tickets
- Unpaid child support
- Failure to appear in Court for an appearance
- Failure to check in with a probation or parole officer
- Being a suspect in a criminal investigation
While some of these issues can be cleared up more easily than others, it is universally true that the situation will only get worse if one continues to avoid law enforcement. In many cases, such as unpaid traffic tickets or missed court appearances, Bretton Barber can help a person avoid additional fines related to the warrant and help negotiate a reasonable resolution. With issues related to missing probation meetings or not fulfilling all of your sentencing obligations, it may also be possible to avoid additional penalties related to the warrant. If a warrant is out for your arrest, do not make it worse by hiding from police. Contact our lawyer today with assistance in cleaning up the issue.
