I Failed To Appear In a Florida Court To Answer a Charge(s) Brought Against Me and Now a Bench Warrant Has Been Issued For My Arrest. What Should I Do?

If you fail to appear in court to answer charges brought against you, then a judge may hold you in “contempt of court”, and issue a bench warrant for your arrest. This can happen as a result of traffic violations, negligible misdemeanors, or serious criminal offenses. In fact, a bench warrant may even be issued for your failure to report to jury duty. If a bench warrant has been issued for your arrest, then the best thing to do is to get the help of a Florida criminal defense attorney.

A good Florida criminal defense attorney will know what documents and evidence to submit to the court, as well as what arguments they need to make in your defense. If fact, court officials generally don’t want to waste time chasing down citizens with bench warrants. Unfortunately, failure to appear in court may result in harsher penalties when your original charges would have. That’s why it’s vital to contact a Florida criminal defense attorney immediately to begin resolving your bench warrant and other charges pending against you.
