Boston Warrant Removal Lawyer
Outstanding Warrant Removal in Massachusetts
A warrant is an order made by a judge, which enables law enforcement officials to arrest someone. Having an active warrant issued against you can ultimately lead to an arrest. Many people find out about having an outstanding warrant when they apply or obtain a new job, renew their driver’s license, or get pulled over by the police. However, it is possible to resolve the issue with the help of an experienced criminal defense lawyer.
If you or a loved one has an outstanding warrant, do not hesitate to let the Law Offices of James G. DeGiacomo help you. As a former prosecutor with nearly a decade of legal experience in Massachusetts, Attorney James G. DeGiacomo understands the necessary steps people with warrants should take to avoid harsh criminal penalties and get their lives back on track.
Types of Warrants
There are two main types of warrants in Massachusetts: arrest warrants (or simple warrants) and default warrants.
An arrest warrant is issued when a person is charged with a crime or indicted for a felony offense. This type of warrant enables police officers to detain the individual. As more time goes by after the arrest warrant is issued, the more serious the negative consequences will be.
On the other hand, a default warrant is issued when a person fails to report to his/her court date for a pending case. This type of warrant is often issued when someone forgets their court date. Keep in mind, the consequences of a default warrant can be just as harsh as an arrest warrant.
In most cases, voluntarily addressing the issue will result in the court removing the warrant and set a new court date. Additionally, you will likely be charged a default removal fee.
However, if you have defaulted multiple times in the same case or you are facing serious felony charges, then the court may hold a hearing to determine if a bail should be set. Remember, your driver’s license will be suspended upon the issuance of a warrant, so an arrest could lead to an additional charge of driving with a suspended license.
