It’s a sinking feeling when you learn there is a warrant out for your arrest. You may not have even known about it until attorney letters started showing up in the mail or you get a call from a friend who found it online. Hopefully, you are finding out before a police officer is standing at your doorstep trying to serve the warrant.
Now that you know about it, what can you do?
Option 1- Do nothing.
Your first option is to do nothing. This is not a good option, but one a lot of people choose by default. Ignoring the problem won’t make it go away, and eventually you will be arrested and taken to jail. Probably at the most inconvenient time possible. We have seen clients arrested at work or in front of their family members. If you are arrested during a traffic stop your vehicle will likely be towed. You might also be arrested in a different jurisdiction and have to wait to be transferred to the jurisdiction that has the warrant. This can mean up to 10 days in jail just to get transferred.
After your arrest, you will have the challenge of trying to communicate from behind bars. Hopefully you have several phone numbers memorized and family members on the outside willing to help you get out of jail.
Option 2- Take care of it.
Your second option is to take care of it now, on your own terms. In some cases, warrants can be cleared without you having to go to jail. You will want to talk to an attorney and a bondsman. An attorney can advise you of the best course of action to clear the warrant and a bondsman can be prepared to post a bond if one is required.
So, let’s talk more about that second option, getting it cleared before you end up in the back of a police car. It is important to know what jurisdiction has issued the warrant. Was it a city court, like the City of Norman, or was it a district court, like Cleveland County. Every jurisdiction is different and they all have different policies on how warrants can or can’t be cleared.
Free and easy warrant check:
If you are not sure if you have an arrest warrant, call or text Rodney’s Bail Bonds at 405-205-0603. They will need your name, date of birth, and the city or county where you think you might have a warrant. Most checks can be completed within a couple of minutes.
If you want to check for yourself, you can.
Unfortunately, there is not a central database available to the public, so you will first need to know what jurisdiction you might have a warrant in. Knowing that, you can generally contact that jurisdiction directly by calling the Court Clerk, Sheriff’s office or looking on OSCN.net (At the bottom of this page are some helpful links to aid in your search.)
What to do if you have a warrant?
If you do have a warrant, call Rodney at 405-205-0603 to discuss your options.
Depending on the jurisdiction, a “walk-thru” or “walk through” is one way to get yourself back on track. Simply put, it allows you to “walk-thru” the booking process, clears the arrest warrant, and puts you on a better path to fight your case. In most cases, you will be in and out quickly without having to spend any time in jail.
You’ll breathe easier knowing that everything has been pre-planned & that Rodney is standing by waiting for you.
Often, the clients we talk to did not even know they had a warrant. If you are not sure, call Rodney at 405-205-0603 and he will do a free check.
