Arizona Warrants

Were You Issued a Warrant in Arizona?

There are a number of reasons you could be issued a warrant, ranging from failing to show up for your court date to having a secret grand jury warrant issued against you. No matter what your warrant involves, it can be incredibly stressful to manage, and it’s important to seek legal counsel to help make sure you take the right actions. While some charges can result in far more severe penalties, even the lightest charge can result in jail time. If you believe you may have a warrant or are suspected of having committed a crime, you need an experienced attorney immediately.

What’s the Difference Between an Arrest Warrant and a Bench Warrant?

Depending on your situation, you could face one of two different types of warrants – not including search warrants, which do not mean you are wanted for a crime, but that a judge was convinced that there is probable cause a search will produce evidence of a crime.

Bench Warrants

Bench warrants are issued after a failure to appear at a set court date for a minor matter like a traffic offense. These failure to appear warrants can be prosecuted as a separate offense with additional penalties on top of those for the original issue. If the initial crime you were charged with is classified as a petty offense or misdemeanor, then a Failure to Appear will be a class 1 misdemeanor. If the initial crime you were charged with is classified as a felony, then a Failure to Appear will be a class 5 felony.

Arrest Warrants

Arrest warrants are issued after police present sufficient evidence to a judge, who then determines that there is probable cause to arrest someone who is believed to have committed that crime. Once the police obtain this warrant, they will likely proceed to your office, home, or other location you are known to frequent to bring you to jail. In many cases, you will be placed in handcuffs in front of anyone present, which can result in serious consequences no matter how your case proceeds.
