A Bench warrant is a court order asking for your arrest and is issued when a judge orders you to appear in court and you fail to follow those orders. A bench warrant may be issued by the state or by the federal government for any of the following reasons: if you fail to appear in court for arraignment, a citation, criminal sentencing or to pay a fine. A bench warrant can also be issued if an arrest warrant has been issued in your name. Once a bench warrant is issued for a person, law enforcement then has the authorization needed to place you under arrest.
