Bench Warrants

Delaware Bench Warrant Lawyer

delaware bench warrant lawyer

In Delaware, if you have been arrested and fail to carry out all legal obligations related to your arrest, you will have a bench warrant issued for your arrest. Once the bench warrant is issued, if you have any interaction with the police, you will be arrested.

Being arrested in a scenario like that can cause you a significant amount of aggravation. You need to consult with an attorney if you have a bench warrant out for your arrest. You have options that can protect you. Without an experienced lawyer, you could risk losing your freedom. 

Do not wait to contact a Sussex County, Delaware Defense Lawyer at the Law Offices of Murray, Phillips & Gay if you have a bench warrant, or failure to appear, in Delaware. Learn more about Search Warrants and Bench Warrants. 

Reasons a Bench Warrant is Issued in Delaware

You may have a bench warrant issued for your arrest in Delaware if you:

  • Neglect or fail to make a scheduled court or sentencing appearance
  • Neglect or failure to pay fines, fees, or child support payments
  • Violate a court order, such as failing to perform community service

Penalties If Arrested Via Bench Warrant

If police ultimately arrest you for something unrelated to your bench warrant, you will be taken into custody immediately. For example, you will be arrested if you are pulled over in a routine traffic stop. You may be held without bail, or you may be released on bail until your court date. Since you failed to fulfill all legal obligations, the penalties and consequences may be very severe when you go to court.

Your previous criminal history, a record since the initial arrest, and other factors will determine your options regarding having your charges dismissed or minimized.
