Oftentimes, clients come to us because they did not go to their court appearance for their DUI, neglected to pay their fines, or failed to obey a court order. It is a common myth that if you don’t go to the court, or if you ignore any letters that they send you, the case might become lost or forgotten. That is untrue. When it comes to warrants, even if years pass, the law will not let the case go until it is tried.
This is a recent example from Poway, California. According the Poway Patch, on the morning of September 24th 2016, four deputies and a sergeant conducted a sweep in Poway in order to arrest people with pending warrants for drunk driving, which resulted in a total of three arrests. These three people demonstrated what is known as “contempt of court,” which means they possibly face probation violation, jail or prison time, fines, or license suspension.
One way to prevent getting an arrest warrant is by hiring an attorney to take care of your case.
