Having a warrant issued for your arrest is a frightening and dangerous situation, especially when law enforcement arrives to execute the warrant and place you under arrest. Not to be confused with a bench warrant, which is issued when an individual has failed to appear in front of the court for a mandatory hearing, an arrest warrant is issued when a judge has been presented with sufficient evidence to believe that you have committed a crime. Arrest warrants can be issued for suspects involved in sex crimes, drug crimes, theft crimes, white collar crimes, domestic violence cases, murder cases, and many other types of crimes. When a warrant has been issued for your arrest, law enforcement officials can come to your home, your place of business or any other location where they believe you may be located.
