Warrants & Bonds

A warrant for someone’s arrest for criminal charges can be issued by Judges for multiple reasons. In more serious cases, they are usually issued at the initiation of charges being filed by the prosecuting attorney. Warrants are also used by courts to have defendants arrested if they are accused of violating their probation, if they fail to appear in court, or if they fail to pay a fine.
A bond is the amount of money that will need to be posted for the subject of the warrant to get out of jail. When warrants are first issued by a Judge, they are often very high, and can be beyond the resources of many defendants. A skilled and competent criminal defense attorney can often greatly reduce the amount of the bond required to be posted with the court before a defendant’s release.
