Recalling San Diego Bench Warrants

People move and never received information.  They felt they did not have financial means to pay for fines and thought they would pay later.  These are just some reasons San Diego Bench Warrants are issued.

There are so many terms that come with a San Diego DUI that people can miss completing it or turning it in.  More often, it can be a mistake in the business office.  For example, I am heading to court tomorrow to clear up a bench warrant that was issued for not enrolling in a San Diego DUI education program.  Well...I will be showing them her certificate of completion...after she went and showed proof months ago.  Whether it was a mistake by the person or the court, a San Diego Bench Warrant will be forthcoming.

Be proactive.

Bench warrants are the most common type of warrant issued in California.  They refer to a warrant that is issued from "the bench", which means, it will be issued by a judge.

Unlike a California arrest warrant, a bench warrant isn't issued based on suspected criminal activity.  A bench warrant is most typically issued for:

  failing to appear for court,

 failing to complete a Madd course in a San Diego DUI,

 

 failing to pay a fine, and/or

  failing to obey any other court order.

  failing to show proof of the completed terms

and many many more reasons....

Doing any of the above is considered "contempt of  court" and subjects you to a bench warrant and a possible:

  a probation violation,

  a county jail or California state prison sentence,

  enhanced fines, and/or

  a California drivers license suspension.

If you decide to represent yourself, you are placing yourself at a disadvantageous position. You could be arrested and placed in police custody as soon as you enter a courtroom.  An experienced San Diego criminal lawyer can get the warrant recalled and, in many instances, prevent law enforcement authorities from taking you into police custody.

If you have a San Diego misdemeanor case, your lawyer might be able to go to court and get the warrant recalled without you having to show up. An experienced San Diego criminal attorney who knows how to deal with these kinds of cases will know what documents and other information the court might need to quickly resolve your case. A skilled criminal attorney will know how to convey to a prosecutor and the judge the reason that your warrant should be recalled and why you shouldn't be placed in custody. 

This is just one of many reasons why it is key to hope for the best and prepare for the worst and make sure you have a solid San Diego attorney to help you.

 Hire a Proactive, affordable, and quality defense when you are facing San Diego DUI charges.  Whether you have been charged of a San Diego DUI, Poway DUI, Chula Vista DUI, La Mesa DUI, Santee DUI, Mission Valley DUI, Clairemont DUI, Point Loma DUI, La Jolla DUI, Carmel Valley DUI, Mira Mesa DUI, Pacific Beach DUI, Del Mar DUI, Encinitas DUI, Oceanside DUI, Ocean Beach DUI, Escondido DUI, Vista DUI, San Marcos DUI, Carlsbad DUI, El Cajon DUI, San Diego Expungement, San Diego Bench Warrant, San Diego Failure to Appear, San Diego Restraining Orders, San Diego Terminate Probation, San Diego Minor Possession of Alcohol, San Diego Probation Violation, San Diego Prop 47, it is vital you need to hire an attorney who knows how to defend your rights and can determine if the government can prove their case.  Contact the Law Office of Mark Deniz now for a free case evaluation at (858) 751-4384 or send an email to mark@denizdefense.com.
