Should You Turn Yourself in on an Outstanding Warrant?

When someone has an outstanding warrant out for their arrest, they are left with the choice of waiting to be caught or turning themselves in. Courts often look positively at those who take responsibility for their actions and turn themselves in. Often the court will grant bail so you can go home while your attorney helps you to deal with your case.  

If you do not turn yourself in, you risk compounding an already serious legal issue and spending an unnecessary night or weekend in jail if you are picked up on a Friday. 

It is in your best interest to consult with a knowledgeable and experienced criminal defense attorney prior to making any decision regarding turning yourself in. Your attorney can contact the police department or Attorney General’s office prior to your surrender to negotiate the terms of your release.  

There are various ways in which you can deal with an outstanding warrant, but pretending that it doesn’t exist will not help.
