Arrest Warrants Attorney in Pasadena, CA
Know your rights when dealing with an arrest warrant
In the State of California, law enforcement has the authority to arrest you with or without a warrant.
- To be arrested without a warrant, you must have committed a crime in the presence of a law enforcement officer.
- An arrest warrant is issued in the event that law enforcement suspects you of committing a crime (such as after they’ve completed a criminal investigation) and petitions a judge for the warrant.
Having a warrant out for your arrest means that a law enforcement officer can arrest you at any time, anywhere.
In the case of bench warrants, law enforcement typically does not take measures to find you to be arrested. Instead, you may be arrested if you are pulled over for a routine traffic stop and the officer who stopped you sees that there is a bench warrant in your name when he or she pulls up your information.
Other arrest warrants allow the police to visit your residence or place of business to arrest you.
If you have been issued an arrest warrant, or have been arrested on a warrant, you need to contact an experienced criminal defense attorney as quickly as possible. There are many instances in which a California arrest warrant is not valid.
