Have you checked the Sheriff’s shelbywarrants website and found that you have a warrant for your arrest? Warrants can come about for several reasons, but a new criminal charge, a missed court date, or a violation of your probation are the most common reasons.
Bench Warrant Attorney in Memphis
If you have a bench warrant due to a missed court date in Memphis, hiring an attorney is likely your best option, as an attorney can advance your case in the proper court and go before the judge asking for a recall of your warrant, which can prevent you from going to jail and having your bond raised and/or revoked. Judges consider many factors in deciding whether or not to recall a bench warrant including why you missed court, and the length of time it took for you to rectify the situation. Many judges have different policies and philosophies as to warrant recalls, so call for an individualized assessment of your situation.
