Warrants are court orders issued to all law enforcement
requiring the arrest of a person who is wanted by the court.
Sometimes law enforcement may go to the last known address
of a person with a warrant in an attempt to find him. If
law enforcement comes upon a person who has a warrant out
for them, they will usually be immediately arrested and incarcerated
until they come before the court that issued the warrant.
Warrants are issued for a variety of reasons but the most
common reason is when the client fails to appear
at a court date; this can be a failure to appear
at the initial court date or at a court date farther into
the case. Other reasons for warrants to issue include failing
to report to a probation officer, failure to complete a court
ordered program, failure to pay fines and failure to follow
other court requirements.
On occasion a warrant will be issued by the court at the
request of the District Attorney without advising the client.
This usually occurs after the District Attorney has completed
an investigation and has decided that the client needs to
be taken into custody right away either because the crime
is serious or there is a concern that the client may leave
the area. For many cases however, the client is sent a letter
and told to appear at a certain date, time and place. Failure
to appear at the time indicated on the letter can cause a
warrant to issue. Most clients are issued tickets and told
to appear in court on a certain date.
If you have a warrant out for your arrest you should contact
Mr. Bruzzo immediately to get advice. On some misdemeanor
warrants Mr. Bruzzo may be able to appear without
you being present. It is also a good idea to have
an attorney with you on a felony warrant as well since in
certain circumstances he may be able to get you released
without bail and with a new date to appear. Generally speaking
it is a better idea to turn yourself in on warrant WITH YOUR
ATTORNEY PRESENT because the court looks favorably upon that.
In addition, in most cases the stress of having a warrant
hang over your head subjecting you to arrest at anytime is
usually not worth it.
Mr. Bruzzo has represented many clients in warrant matters.
