An arrest warrant is issued by a judge on behalf of the Court, authorizing the arrest and detention of a person or the search and seizure of his or her property. In San Diego County, even minor offenses or traffic tickets can turn into arrest warrants.

How to Clear Bench Warrants in San Diego County
A bench warrant is used by the court in order to attach or arrest an individual. In many cases, bench warrants are issued for the failure to appear in court related to misdemeanors, felonies, or traffic charges. A bench warrant can also be issued for witnesses that disobey subpoenas. As in the case of an arrest warrant, a bench warrant has no statute of limitations.
Depending on the jurisdiction and the gravity of the charges, a bench warrant may lead to an immediate arrest or to a notification. However, take into consideration that any interaction with law enforcement, for example, making a complaint, can lead to the warrant being executed.
Clearing the bench warrant is a simple procedure and King Triton Bail Bonds can help you with the process. We can contact the court for you, post the bond and clear the warrant so you won't have to go into custody. Use our knowledgeable and experienced bail bond agents to stay out of jail.
Probation Violations and Warrants
When a crime does not pose a high criminal risk, the court can designate probation instead of jail time or a fine. In such cases, the offender has to respect the conditions that were imposed or the judge can send him or her to jail. Probation has the role of rehabilitating convicted people, but in practice, it also involves some forms of punishment. Probation conditions vary according to the offender and the crime.
Misdemeanor or summary probation can go on from one to five years. Those placed under it have to:
- Respect the probation conditions set by the judge, for example, do community work, do therapy or seek employment.
- Appear periodically in front of the judge and report on their progress.
If the convicted person doesn't appear before the judge, or he or she appears but violates probation terms, the judge can revoke probation. For failure to appear, the judge can issue a bench warrant.
Felony or formal probation might last from three to five years. While on probation, those on probation have to:
- Meet regularly with their probation officer.
- Comply with any condition imposed by the courts, such as paying restitution, doing therapy or submitting to drug tests.
In San Diego County, probation conditions are often demanding and many end up violating probation. When the probation officer or any other Police officer suspects that the person on probation has committed a new crime, has not submitted to a drug test or has failed to appear in court, they can make an arrest. An arrest warrant can also be issued by the judge.
