Arrest Warrants in New Jersey

An arrest warrant will be issued when a criminal complaint is signed against a defendant by either law enforcement or another citizen. Remember, for a citizen complaint to be filed, a judge must find probable cause for the issuance of the criminal complaint. Either way, once the criminal complaint is filed, the defendant will be arrested, charged, and processed. The processing includes fingerprints and a photograph (typically referred to as a “mugshot”). Additionally, bail must be set. Sometimes, depending on the severity of the charges, the defendant will be released on his or her own recognizance and will be given a court date. Failure to appear in court on the scheduled date will result in a bench warrant being issued.

 

Bench Warrants in New Jersey

Bench warrants are issued by a judge based on the defendant’s failure to comply with a legal obligation, such as one of the following:

  • Failure to appear in court
  • Failure to comply with a court order
  • Failure to pay an outstanding fine or comply with another court-imposed penalty
  • Failure to pay child support

The most common bench warrant is issued based on the defendant failing to appear in court on a required court date. It is very important to resolve these pending matters so that a warrant is not outstanding for your arrest.

 

Success Story: Resolving an Outstanding Warrant in Morris County NJ 

Recently, Mr. Tormey represented a woman in Morris County who failed to appear in court on a driving while suspended ticket from 1992. As such, there was an outstanding bench warrant for her arrest since 1992. Mr. Tormey and the defendant posted bail on her behalf and the court scheduled a court date so that this outstanding matter could be resolved. Mr. Tormey helped to resolve the matter, and the defendant was able to get her license back after having been unable to have a license for twenty (20) years.
