Why would I have a warrant out for my arrest and how do I find out if I do? By Daniel Smith

There are several reasons why a warrant for your arrest could have been issued. If you miss a court date a warrant may be issued. If you fail to comply with probation a warrant may be issued. If you fail to pay your court fines a warrant may be issued. These are only a few of the reasons why a warrant may be issued for you.

If you would like to find out whether a warrant may be issued for you in San Diego, you can search online at the San Diego Sheriff’s Website: http://www.sdsheriff.net/.

If a warrant has been issued for you or a loved one it is important that you deal with the warrant as soon as possible. If you do not it is possible that police will come to your home and arrest you or your loved one. If you or a loved one with a warrant is pulled over for a traffic violation you or they may be arrested right at the spot and your car may be left or impounded. Any police contact may result in an arrest due to the warrant.

If or when you are arrested you will be booked and you will have to have someone pay bail to have you released from jail. Bail can be costly and if you use a bail bondsmen you will not receive the money you give them back.
