Kansas City Warrant Attorney

Bench and Arrest Warrants in Kansas City Missouri

If you have a bench warrant out for your arrest, it is advisable to call a Kansas City criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. A bench warrant is issued for any person who has committed some form of contempt against the court. If you take action now, an attorney may be able to help you resolve the warrant before you suffer the embarrassment and hassle of being arrested at home, at work in front of your colleagues, or during a roadside traffic stop.

There are many reasons why a judge could decide to issue a bench warrant for your arrest. One of the most common scenarios is when a defendant facing criminal charges or prosecution for a traffic offense fails to appear for the scheduled court date. A judge may also issue a warrant for:

  • Failure to pay a court fine
  • Delinquency in paying child support
  • Non-attendance at a court mandated substance abuse, alcohol abuse or anger management class after a conviction for a drug crime, DWI, or a violent crime
  • Ignoring a subpoena to appear in court
  • Failure to complete conditions of court ordered probation
