Warrant REcalls in Memphis, TN
If you have missed court due to illness, a family emergency, or just plain confusion as to when you were due in court, then you are probably aware that a warrant was issued for your arrest. There are ways to take care of an outstanding warrant without being taken into custody.
What To Do When a Warrant Is Issued For Your Arrest
First, and most importantly, once a warrant is issued, get to court as soon as possible to resolve the situation. The longer you wait to address a judge regarding the outstanding warrant, the more likely it is that the warrant will not be recalled, and you will be taken into custody. In most misdemeanor cases, assuming you have hired an attorney and have a legitimate excuse for missing court, and the warrant has not been outstanding for too long, then most judges will recall the warrant.
Again, the above situation relates to Misdemeanor cases in General Sessions Court. If you have missed your date in Criminal Court, then you are likely to have your bond revoked and taken into custody until a hearing date to determine your eligibility for release.
