A judge issues a bench warrant when a person fails to appear for a scheduled court date. The bench warrant authorizes peace officers to arrest the person on sight. If not taken care of a bench warrant can result in detention, forfeiture of bail, and suspension of your driver’s license. Fortunately, the matter of an open bench warrant can usually be quickly resolved.
