In San Diego County even minor offenses or traffic tickets can turn into arrest warrants. Once the charges against you have been filled, an arrest warrant is generated. It is important to know that arrest warrants have no statute of limitations. They will be valid until the police arrest you or until they are recalled by the court that issued them. You might be unsure about the existence of an arrest warrant in your name. Also, information about arrest warrants is challenging to find. There are many types of arrest warrants and they are not accessible in one single place.

Bench and Arrest Warrants when Violating Probation
When a crime does not pose a high criminal risk, the court can designate probation instead of jail time or fine payment. In such cases, the offender has to respect the imposed conditions or the judge can send them 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 crime being a misdemeanor or a felony.
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, seek employment.
- Appear periodically in front of the judge and report on the 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 convicted have to:
- Meet regularly with their probation officer.
- Comply with any condition imposed by the courts, such as paying restitution, doing therapy, submitting to drug tests.
In San Diego County, probation conditions are often demanding and many end up violating them. When the probation officer or any other Police officer suspects that the person has committed a new crime, has not submitted to a drug test or has failed to appear in court, they can make an arrest. Also, the judge can issue an arrest warrant.
