If you think you may have a warrant for your arrest in Milwaukee, you’re probably pretty worried. What does it mean, and what are you supposed to do next? Here’s what you need to know.
How Do You Know if There’s a Warrant for Your Arrest in Milwaukee?
First things first: You need to find out whether there’s a warrant or if you’re worried about nothing. You can search the Wisconsin Circuit Court’s website to find out whether there’s a warrant out for you by clicking here. Enter your information in the search boxes after agreeing to the court’s terms.
Types of Warrants
In most cases, the warrants the courts issue are either because someone didn’t appear in court when he or she was supposed to or because the police are after someone to detain them for questioning (or police believe they committed a crime).
If you have a warrant for your arrest and the police find you, they’ll arrest you.
What to Do if You Have a Warrant Out for Your Arrest in Milwaukee
If you have a warrant out for your arrest in Milwaukee, you probably need to talk to an attorney. Your lawyer will be there to preserve your rights when you turn yourself in. In some cases, the attorney can explain your situation to the court so that you don’t have any more issues.
What NOT to Do if You Have a Warrant
Don’t leave the state or try to hide. If you know you have a warrant, your best bet is to take care of the situation – if you leave Wisconsin or try to “hide out” in hopes that it’ll blow over, you could add to the list of charges against you. Sometimes if you attempt air travel, security systems will send up a red flag and it could look like you’re trying to flee.
