Bench warrant

Bench warrant

A bench warrant or an Alias Capias can be issued by a court for a defendant's failure to appear for a case. Other circumstances may exist for the issuance of a warrant by a judge; for example, a violation of probation. If one is placed on probabtion with the court and subsequently violates the probabtion, a warrant may be issued. In the event a warrant is issued, the court may attach a monetary bond so that when the defendant is arrested by the police, he/she may post a bond. However, sometimes the court may place a no bond hold which requires the defendant to appear before the judge in order to be released from jail.
