If you have been served with an arrest warrant unexpectedly, you may be scared. This is especially the case if you did not know there was a warrant for your arrest or you have never been on “the wrong side of the law” before. You may be wondering:
Our goal is to make sure you understand your situation and answer any questions you may have. We will work to find out the consequences that you face and, if possible, have your warrant recalled. We are also prepared to help defend you against whatever criminal charges you are facing.
There are laws surrounding the specific criteria of each type of warrant, as well as how they are executed. This does not mean, however, that those criteria are always met or that warrants are executed according to the law. Sometimes, judges will issue warrants on the basis of information that is incomplete or misleading. Other times, warrants are not executed appropriately by law enforcement.
What does this mean for you? It is sometimes possible to have evidence thrown out or have criminal charges dismissed in cases where a warrant should not have been issued in the first place, or if law enforcement carried out the warrant improperly. Don’t sit idly by while a warrant hangs over your head and threatens your future. Our San Jose criminal defense firm can help investigate your warrant, determine the best way forward, and help you put this experience in the past where it belongs.
