Los Angeles Superior Court and Federal Bench Warrants - Los Angeles Criminal Defense Lawyer:

A bench warrant is a variant of an arrest warrant that authorizes the immediate on-sight arrest of the individual subject to the bench warrant. Los Angeles criminal defense lawyer Mary Masi has handled over 500 bench warrant matters in the Los Angeles Superior Court for failure to appear, violation of misdemeanor and felony probation, and violation of restraining orders or injunction cases.

If a person has a bench warrant when stopped by a law enforcement officer, then authorities frequently take them into custody and they must remain in jail until their case is heard by a judge at a hearing. Frequently, the hearing results in the court setting a new bail amount, or quashes the warrant. If the person is on misdemeanor probation, then many times probation is revoked and then reinstated on the same terms or new terms and conditions with the person being released from custody soon after the hearing. In felony cases, the person may have to remain in custody until the underlying basis for the warrant is resolved. Please also review our Home and Probation Violation pages.
