Question: I have a bench warrant for my arrest but I live in another state where I am already suppose to start probation but I can't until I can get the warrants taken care of in Arizona? How do I go about handling the warrant in Arizona

Answer: It will depend on what the warrants are for. If the warrants are for failure to comply with a sentence, such as pay a fine you may be able to pay the fine to quash the warrant. If the warrant is for a failure to appear, you will likely have a bond that needs to be posted in order to quash the warrant, as well as you personal appearance. In some cases the judge will quash the warrant if you appear in person. If they are warrants for misdemeanor offenses, you may be able to hire a local attorney to appear and have the warrants quashed. If it is a felony warrant, you will likely need to appear in person. There are many variables that come into play, so it is best to speak with a local attorney to know exactly what can be done.
