What can you do if they keep trying to serve a warrant on someone who doesn't live there?
Tell the officers / deputies that the person has moved. If anyone comes back out tell them again not to come back the person has moved. Then call the on duty supervisor (sergeant, lieutenant) so in breifing he can instruct the other officers not to go there.
Not really too much. If Law Enforcement has reasonable suspicion that the person DOES, in fact, live, stay, or visit there, they will continue to attempt to serve the warrant. The allegation that the person doesn't liive there is an old, tired excuse used to throw off the search. This is especially true if you happen to be a relative or friend of the wanted person. If the wanted subject does not, in fact, live…
You can call the court or law enforcement agency that holds the warrant and tell them the location of the person named in the warrant. Whether they act to arrest him depends on the nature of the offense, whether the person is in their jurisdiction or their state, and the availability of officers to serve the warrant.
I'm going to assume (always a dangerous thing to do) that the question refers to a Process Server or perhaps a Deputy Sheriff attempting to serve you with court papers. Only a judge can issue a Bench Warrant, but if the papers they are trying to serve you with are issued by a judge and you are wilfully avoiding them, the judge COULD issue a bench warrant for your arrest to compel your appearance before…
How long does the police have to serve a warrant on a felony drug warrant like introduction of contraband?
There is no statutory time limit on the service of a warrant. If the investiagtion is ongoing they may be holding off on it while they gather additional information on you or your contacts and crimes. OR - of course,. if you're avoiding the service of the warrant, you will not beat it by trying to outwait it.
The question seems a little backhanded. If you have an Arizona arrest warrant, I would assume that you are an officer of the law and you are going to serve that warrant on someone. Do you mean that there is an arrest warrant out for your arrest? If there is and you are out of the state of Arizona, I am sure that they would like for you to fly back to Arizona.
Yes, it is. If you are referring to the date that the warrant was actually served does not match the date that the judge signed it.... it makes no difference. Often a warrant will be held for a time until law enforcement feels that the time is "just right" to serve it. If the warrant was 'legally sufficient' when the judge signed it, it's still 'legally sufficient' the date it is served.
There is no set answer. If the FTA (Failure to Appear) warrant stems from a serious case the police are more likely to consider it a priority to find the person and serve the warrant. In lesser matters, the police are more likely to notify the person that a warrant has been issued and make arrangements for them to turn themselves in. Some departments also have dedicated warrant service officers or teams who serve warrants…
How long does the sheriff have to serve a bench warrant in California before he is unable to serve it?
They must bring their evidence before a judge. Any officer can request the warrant, and the officer(s) serving the warrant do not have to be the same ones who requested it, nor do they even need to have the original warrant in their possession. As long as they have confirmation a warrant has been issued, they may serve it.
It would depend on what the warrant is issued for, the severity of the crime and if you can be located for the warrant to be served. Also, would it serve the common good of the citizens if the money was spent to be extradited. You will have to face the warrant. Even if the statutes of limitations was up on the crime, the warrant never goes away.
If a bench warrant is issued for someone who was in prison does that mean when they get out on probation they will be arrested and have to serve the rest of their term?
Although an "open" serve would be unusual, unless the service time of the warrant was specifically time limited, there is no requirement that a warrant be acted upon within so many days of issuance. Sometimes, situations and events must coincide in order for the warrant to be served and obtain effective results.
It means exactly what it says. A warrant for your arrest has been issued by a judge and it has been assigned to an officer to serve on you and take you into custody. If you have knowledge that the ploice ARE holding a warrant for you, it is probably a good idea if you voluntarily turned yourself in. It looks 'better' to the court, if you do.
Law enforcement is NOT required to show you and allow you the time to read the warrant prior to their serving it. In some instances it is not even necessary that they have the warrant in their possession. Mere knowledge that the affidavit has been approved and signed off on by a judge is sufficient legal authority to serve it.
The bench warrant is not what is important What determines the time is why the judge wants you What you do to avoid going to see him And how angry he is when you end up in front of him I had a bench warrant issued and didn't even end up with a slapped wrist, got held up at security getting into the court house
It depends on what is stipulated in the warrant. You can ask to see the warrant and read it over carefully to understand what is allowed and what is not. Your best bet is contacting a criminal defense attorney. Added: The last sentence above is good advice - IF you are looking for advice IN ADVANCE of the fact. At the time the police arrive to serve the warrant, they are NOT going to await…
