A bench warrant is issued when a person has been charged with an offense, is scheduled to appear in court, and does not show up. If you have been charged with a crime or a traffic offense and do not show up for your scheduled court date a bench warrant is often issued. This means the police or local law enforcement will be looking for you, just like they would for someone with an arrest warrant. Once located you will be arrested and taken into custody solely on the basis of your failure to appear. If you are facing charges of any kind don’t go it alone.
