What is an arrest warrant in Florida?
Answer: So an arrest warrant is a warrant that is signed by a judge which says please bring this individual back to the jurisdiction to face the charge that is pending against them. An arrest warrant can happen in many different areas; an arrest warrant can happen because the police were doing an investigation, and let’s just say they were doing an undercover drug deal and you sold to them in a transaction so they know who you are, and they go to a judge and they get an arrest warrant and they come and arrest you. That’s one way or one reason an arrest warrant could exist.A second reason is that you were arrested on a case and you failed to show up in court, and it was a mandatory court date and a judge issued a warrant for your arrest. Also an arrest warrant. Depending on the type of charge, sometimes those warrants—especially felony warrants—are active even out of state, so don’t think just because you got arrested for a felony and you didn’t show up in court that they aren’t going to come get you when you flee to California or Indiana or New Jersey or wherever the case may be. Because in most instances they are going to come for you, and the problem that you have is you then get extradited back to Florida, usually with no bond, meaning you couldn’t bond out in the jurisdiction where you were caught, and to make matters worse, you’re going to sit on a transport van as they go between every state between where you were caught and the state of Florida. It’s a nightmare situation. If you know that you have a warrant for your arrest, it’s always best to contact an attorney so maybe the attorney can negotiate some sort of a turn-in for you.
