What should I do if I have an outstanding warrant?
If you’re told there’s a warrant for your arrest, the first thing you need to do is get a lawyer hired before you’re arrested. That’s important because there are a couple of things a lawyer can do. The lawyer can go find out what the case is about, and in some cases he can talk to the judge and get a bond set at a low rate so you can get out. The main thing that the lawyer can do, in most cases, is turn you in at the courthouse where you get processed in about two hours. If you wait until you’re arrested by a Sheriff’s Deputy, you’ll be put in jail when it can take anywhere from 12 to 24 hours to get out. If we turn you in at the courthouse, it’s about a two-hour turnaround time. o If we turn you in at 9:30 in the morning, you’ll be out in time for lunch.
