People miss court dates. Sometimes there are good reasons, sometimes there aren’t. We live in busy times and tough financial times. We’ve had clients have a car break down, and that kept them from court. In other cases they just forget their court dates. Finally, some clients just don’t show up because they are scared to death of our criminal justice system.
We have had quite a bit of success in getting warrants recalled for our clients. There aren’t any guarantees. The judge can deny our request. But avoiding the problem is the worst option of all.
There are many benefits to having a bench warrant quashed:
- You can appear in court voluntarily and not have to sit in jail until your trial or hearing.
- You can save hundreds of dollars in bail money.
- You can avoid new charges. We have had clients get pulled over for a simple traffic ticket only to find out they have a failure to appear warrant out for their arrest. Once the client’s car is impounded we’ve had police find new drugs which lead to new charges.
If you have a bench warrant in Maryland for missing court you should contact an attorney immediately. Failing to address an active warrant is one of the worst decisions you can make. It is easy to do. We all get scared. Don’t do it.
