About Failure to Appear/Report

Columbus Failure to Appear/Report Defense Lawyer

When an individual is ordered to appear in court and fails to appear, a bench warrant is issued by the judge.  This warrant means that you can be arrested and put in jail anywhere and anytime.  This is an extremely dangerous situation, even in cases in which the individual facing the charge was unaware of the court date - you will still have to deal with the repercussions.  This is particularly serious in sentencing hearings, as you may be considered to be a flight risk and could have a higher penalty as a result of not arriving for your hearing.  In some cases, individuals on probation have failed to report to the probation officer on their schedule, sometimes for legitimate reasons, such as illness, or actually did report but somehow the records are inaccurate.  Whatever the situation, you must act quickly and contact a Columbus failure to appear defense lawyer.

Failure to Appear/Report Defense Attorney in Columbus

Bench warrants are related to "contempt of court".  The court has ordered to you to either appear or report to your probation officer, and you have failed to do so.  Many Ohio judges do not look kindly upon this behavior, especially when the individual is on probation for a crime, and has avoided a period of jail or prison time.  The judge may come down hard on such cases and insist that you serve the entire length of the original sentence, plus more time if they are so inclined.  What happens when you miss a court appearance in Ohio is a very serious matter.

Some individuals have gotten into this position through an administrative error, or have not received a court notice as they have moved, or illness that caused the matter.  Whatever the case is, it is extremely important that you contact Koffel Law Firm at once, as your situation is critical and you are in danger without fast and effective defense actions taken on your behalf.   Act now.
