What Is a Bench Warrant? “A warrant is a description of the document that the court has issued demanding that you’d be brought before a judge to face a criminal charge. A warrant usually carries a bail amount with it to avoid having to spend time in jail before you go to see a judge.
If you post the bail, the bond excuses you from seeing that judge and requires you to come and see the judge on another date. In other words, you get out of custody. There’s bench warrants for felonies as well as misdemeanors so it doesn’t matter, and if you get a warrant, either one and you know there’s a warrant outstanding for your arrest, you should contact the offices of Greenberg, Greenberg & Kenyon, APLC so we can get that warrant removed as soon as possible.” – Criminal Defense Lawyer Daniel Greenberg
