Bench Warrants in Minneapolis
Minneapolis Criminal Defense Lawyer
A bench warrant is issued for violations of court obligations. The original offense may not have been serious, but if an individual fails to meet the obligations of the judge, a bench warrant may be issued. It now becomes a serious legal issue. An individual arrested on a bench warrant is allowed the same rights as an arrested person. Violations of these rights may make a bench warrant or its consequences unlawful or inadmissible in a court. With fast action you could avoid being picked up and held in jail until a hearing about your case.

In either case, however, you can be picked up and put in jail when a bench warrant is outstanding.
