Arrest Warrant Attorney in Palm Beach County, FL
In many cases, the criminal charges begin with a person being notified by law enforcement that a warrant has been issued for their arrest. During those early stages of the case, the law enforcement officer might ask the person to “come into the office” to talk about the case. After an interrogation, the officer will then serve the warrant.
Any statements made will be used against the person accused. Once you know that law enforcement has begun a criminal investigation and that you are suspected of wrongdoing, never make a statement that might incriminate you. Instead, simply say “I’m taking the 5th until after I talk with my attorney.” Even if you are completely innocent of any wrongdoing, it is usually best to hire an attorney who can present evidence in mitigation and tell your side of the story.
One of our attorneys can contact law enforcement to find out what the warrant is for and the bond amount on the warrant. We can negotiate the terms of your surrender at the jail so that things go quickly and safely. If the bond is set to high, we can argue at first appearance for a much lower bond or a release on recognizance (ROR) bond so that you might not have to pay any money to be released. In many cases, we can save you money that might otherwise be wasted on a bail bondsman.
Failure to Appear Warrant in Palm Beach County, FL
If you failed to appear in court then the judge probably issued a “failure to appear” warrant from the bench. These warrants are often called the FTA warrant. The bond is usually quite high after a missed court date even on a misdemeanor (if you get a bond at all). Many warrants for failure to appear in misdemeanor charges have a “no bond” provision which means you can not bond out.
On felony charges, the court will typically issue a “no bond” warrant after a missed court date.
Criminal defense attorneys can help you resolve an outstanding warrant for missing a court date. In many cases, judges have special procedures for dealing with a FTA warrant that are difficult for an unrepresented person to figure out. Call us to find out more. (561) 771-6336
