How should I handle it if I find out I have a warrant?

Some people who have drug charges know that they have a criminal warrant out for their arrest. This is a troubling occurrence that can make it difficult to live your life how you want to live it.

If you know that you have a warrant out for your arrest, take a few minutes to think about how you should handle the matter. You might be surprised at the following points.

What if the warrant is for a simple matter?

If the warrant is for something simple, you should have your attorney contact the issuing court to determine if it is something that can be handled without you having to appear in court. An example of something that might be able to be handled in this manner is a bench warrant for a failure to appear on a minor drug possession charge.

What if the warrant is for a serious matter?

If your warrant is for a more serious matter, such as drug trafficking, you should discuss your options with your attorney. In almost every case, you will need to turn yourself in to face the charges. You might be surprised by the leniency you receive by turning yourself in. Of course, having your attorney handle this aspect of the case could help you out considerably.

You shouldn't ever think that you should run from a warrant. It might take weeks or even years, but eventually, you will have to face the court. Finding out your options for turning yourself in can help you to make a solid plan and prepare for what is to come.
