It's easier than you might think to end up with warrants for your arrest. Sometimes you don't know that you've done anything wrong and it's even possible to get an arrest warrant for something you haven't done. If you do have a warrant then sooner or later the cops will come and arrest you. Checking for arrest warrants regularly could buy you enough valuable time to allow you to do something about it before you get arrested.
I'm going to go over some of the ways that you can end up with a warrant for your arrest and tell you how you can easily find out if you have one.
Have you been exceeding the speed limit or failed to pay a fine?
You might have forgotten to turn up in court when you should have done or you were late paying a fine. If you have done either of these then you could have an arrest warrant. Have you done any community service that was ordered by a court but you haven't told them that you've done it. You might simply have picked up a fine for speeding and forgotten to pay it.
If you're wondering exactly what an arrest warrant is then you should read this article before continuing http://www.howdo-i.com/backgroundcheck/whatisanarrestwarrant.php The article covers both arrest warrants and bench warrants.
You might be forgiven for thinking that you must have committed a crime of some sort to have a warrant out on you but this isn't always the case. You can be a model citizen and still have the cops knock on your door in the middle of the night. The police only have to think that you're responsible for some wrongdoing and if they have anything that looks like evidence then they can get a warrant for your arrest.
Don't ignore a warrant for arrest because it's so much better to give yourself up
It doesn't matter how you get a warrant. It won't change the fact that you will end up in court and when you do what do you think that the judge will think if the police had to chase you down and arrest you? I think that you might expect to get treated much more sympathetically if you've handed yourself in voluntarily. If you learn about the warrant early enough then you will have time to engage a lawyer which will also be much better for you in the long run.
Has someone stolen your identity?
If you've the unknowing victim of identity theft then you could have many arrest warrants out on you in all sorts of places. Identity theft seems to be getting more and more common and noone is immune from it. The worst part about it is that it might be a long time before you figure out that you're a victim during which time you could have had money stolen from your bank accounts or your impersonator may have committed crimes against someone else. If they did it in your name then it's you who gets the warrant. Sad but true.
