Bench Warrants Defense Attorney In Westlake Village

Clearing a Bench Warrant in Ventura County

A bench warrant is issued by the court when a person fails to keep the terms of their probation or parole. When a person is given probation as a sentence for a first time offense or a minor crime, their probation has set terms, including a certain length of time to be on probation, possibly attending a court ordered drug or anger management program, community service, reporting to their probation officer at set times or other specific terms. The same applies to individuals let out early from their jail sentence, who will remain on probation for a given amount of time. Failure to keep any of these terms could leave you subject to a bench warrant. Either your probation officer or the court judge - if you failed to appear for a scheduled hearing - can request or issue the bench warrant. Once issued, your probation officer can come to your door or place of business and immediately arrest you. Even a common traffic stop by a police officer could result in your incarceration, as they would have access to court records and see that a warrant for your arrest was in place.

If you have failed to keep the terms of your probation or parole, it is important you contact a criminal defense attorney to assist you in preventing a bench warrant from landing you in jail. Having someone come to your home or work unexpectedly is not only embarrassing, it can cost you your job and disrupt your family.
