Situations That Call For a Bench Warrant May Include:
- You neglect or fail to make a scheduled court or sentencing appearance
You violate a court order (you fail to perform community service, for example)
You neglect or fail to pay fines, child support payments, or fees
Once the bench warrant is issued, if you have any interaction with police, you will be arrested. Being arrested in a scenario like this can cause you a tremendous amount of aggravation, and it is important to contact Worcester criminal defense attorneys as soon as possible. Murphy & Rudolf, LLP works hard to provide knowledgeable legal services, and our team can answer your questions and discuss your options to seek a positive outcome.
Penalties Associated with a Bench Warrant in Massachusetts
If you are stopped by police for something unrelated to your bench warrant, such as being pulled over in a routine traffic stop, you will be taken into custody immediately even if your only current fault was a traffic violation. You may be held without bail, or you may be released on bail until your court date. Because you failed to fulfill all legal obligations, the penalties and consequences may be very severe once you go to court.
Your previous criminal history, your record since the initial arrest, and other factors will determine what options you have regarding your bench warrant. The Worcester criminal defense lawyers at Murphy & Rudolf, LLP can analyze the facts of your case to determine the best course of action. We can fight for your rights and do our best to limit or minimize the consequences of your pending bench warrant.
