What Happens If You Go To Court And Have A Warrant?

What Happens If You Go To Court And Have A Warrant?

If you go to court and there is an outstanding warrant for your arrest, the consequences can vary depending on the circumstances and the policies of the court.

Here’s what might happen…

  1. Arrest – If you appear in court and there is an active warrant for your arrest, law enforcement officers in the courtroom may arrest you immediately. They will take you into custody and transport you to the appropriate detention facility.
  2. Detention – After your arrest, you will be held in custody until your case is resolved. Depending on the nature of the warrant and the charges against you, you may be eligible for bail or bond, or you may have to remain in custody until your court proceedings are completed.
  3. Court Appearance – After your arrest, you will likely be brought before a judge for a hearing to address the warrant. During this hearing, the judge will inform you of the charges against you and your rights, and you may have the opportunity to address any issues related to the warrant.
  4. Resolution of the Case – Once you are in custody, the court will proceed with your case. You will have the opportunity to hire an attorney or request a court-appointed attorney to represent you. Depending on the circumstances, you may negotiate a plea deal with the prosecutor, or your case may proceed to trial.
  5. Penalties – If you are found guilty of the charges against you, you may face penalties such as fines, probation, community service, or incarceration, depending on the severity of the offense.

Address any outstanding warrants as soon as possible to avoid further legal consequences. If you are aware of a warrant for your arrest, you should consult with an attorney to understand your rights and options for resolving the warrant.
