                   WHAT IS A BENCH WARRANT?

If you are issued a subpoena or a summons to appear
in court and you fail to appear, the Judge may issue a
bench warrant.

Police will then have the option to arrest you and bring
you back to the Jurisdiction where the warrant was
issued.

Often, if a person is arrested on a bench warrant, the
court may view them a flight risk (likely to flee) and
order that person to be held without bail until their next
court appearance.
