Bench Warrent

I failed to appear for a Tresspassing

after Forbidden court date, which was

yesterday, I thought the date was on

the 15th. When I call the court clerk

tomorrow, will I be able to pay my

fine over the phone or has a bench

warrent been issued for my arrest? If

one has been issued, what does that

mean for me?

Re: Bench Warrent

The clerk will let you know whether a capias(arrest warrant) has been issued for you. If so, you will need to contact (most likely) the Sheriff's Department or other agency holding the warrant and arrange for your surrender.
