Cleburne Traffic Warrant

Cleburne traffic warrantIf you have a Cleburne traffic warrant, you must take action quickly. If you don't, you might get arrested, and probably at the most inconvenient time. I'm attorney Todd E. Tkach. Our law practice includes personal injury, including car wrecks and criminal defense, including traffic citations. Unfortunately, warrants are a part of traffic citations, and Cleburne traffic warrants are no exception.

If you get a Cleburne traffic ticket, you can prevent a Cleburne traffic warrant from being issued, but you must either pay the ticket or go to court and request a pretrial hearing. If you happen to forget to do either, a Cleburne traffic warrant for your arrest will be issued. The problem is that you have to get that warrant lifted. Otherwise, you will eventually get arrested and taken to jail. The arrest could happen at any time. At work, home or during any traffic stop, even if you are not the driver. In this era of technology, the police have new tools to help them serve arrest warrants by making it easier to find people who have outstanding warrants. They have "smart cars" that scan the license plates of vehicles they pass. They do this while they're on patrol or parked in a parking lot watching cars pass them by. If they pass your vehicle and you have an outstanding warrant, it immediately pops up on the computer.

Dangerous Myths About Ticket Warrants That Could Land You In Jail

There are a number of options to deal with an outstanding Cleburne traffic warrant. But, you have to choose one option. Otherwise, you cannot resolve the underlying traffic ticket with the court unless and until you do one of the following things:

  1. Go to the court and pay the ticket. This is not a good option. Although paying the ticket will lift your Cleburne traffic warrant, it creates other problems that could cost a lot of money. Paying the ticket all but guarantees that you got the worst possible outcome on your case. Not only are you paying a high fine amount, but you are convicted of the charge. Paying the ticket means that you are pleading guilty, which is a conviction. Convictions are NOT good. The least of your problems is that It immediately becomes a permanent part of your driving record. The other problems are much worse. Increased auto insurance rates, "points" on your driving record and possible surcharges from the Texas Department of Public Safety or a driver's license suspension.
  2. Another option is to post a cash bond. The good news is that it lifts the Cleburne traffic warrant for your arrest. The bad news is that the cash outlay is likely very high. Hundreds or even a thousand dollars. It's equal to the amount of the fine, plus court costs, a warrant fee and any collection fees that have accumulated. Additionally, you still have to deal with the underlying traffic ticket. You have to go to court for a pretrial hearing. Fail to appear and you lose your cash.
  3. You could hire attorney Todd E. Tkach. Keep your cash and protect your driving record! For a nominal fee, hire Todd E.

It makes no difference to us. We can lift them all. Call the Law Office of Todd E. Tkach now for your free consultation.

Types of Cleburne Traffic Warrants

Generally, there are two types of Cleburne traffic warrants for municipal citations; Alias warrants and Capias warrants:

Alias Warrants

Alias warrants go into effect after you receive a traffic citation if before your appearance date, you fail to either: 1) pay your traffic citation; or 2) request a court hearing. After the Cleburne traffic warrant is issued, if you are stopped, for any reason, you are subject to arrest. Are you in this situation now? Do you have outstanding Alias warrants? Call attorney Todd E. Tkach now! We can post an attorney bond to lift the Cleburne traffic warrant for your arrest and set your case for hearing. At the hearing, we strive for a dismissal of the charge(s) against you. If a dismissal can’t be obtained, we’ll aggressively negotiate to obtain the best possible result for you.

Capias Warrants

Capias warrants are issued when you fail to comply with a plea agreement that you entered into regarding a previous citation. It may be that you agreed to pay a certain fine within a certain time and to not get any other traffic citations within a certain time period. Failure to comply with any part of that agreement will result in a Capias warrant being issued for your arrest. In this situation, it’s probably too late for us to be able to help. You must either pay the fine or remain subject to arrest at any time.

Cleburne Traffic Warrant Roundups

From time to time, anywhere from two (2) to four (4) times per year, most cities and municipalities in the Dallas and Ft. Worth metroplex conduct traffic warrant roundups. What is a traffic warrant roundup? This is when cities and jurisdictions devise and implement plans to actively pursue the arrest of anyone who has outstanding traffic warrants for traffic citations. However, some jurisdictions don’t bother with traffic warrant roundups, but rather have a year –round program to actively arrest anyone with outstanding traffic warrants from that jurisdiction. If you think this can’t happen to you, think again! Many times, we have posted attorney bonds to bail people out of jail who had outstanding Cleburne traffic warrants who were arrested during routine traffic stops, at work or at home. Law enforcement officers do not discriminate when it comes to outstanding Cleburne traffic warrants. They will show up at the homes and/or workplaces of anyone who has outstanding Cleburne traffic warrants, and arrest them. Don’t let this happen to you!

Getting Yourself Arrested for a Ticket Warrant Is Expensive

Getting arrested on an outstanding warrant for an unpaid ticket is the most expensive way to resolve your traffic ticket! First, you will have to bond yourself out of jails with a cash bond for the full amount owed. Second, you will face the highest amount of the fine, known as the "window rate." Thirdly, you will face additional fees for court costs and the collection expense of arresting you. Fourth, if you were pulled over while driving and arrested, your car might be impounded and you might face towing and impound fees to get your car back. Finally, you could also face significant State of Texas surcharges. Plus, you will loose more money from the resulting time away from work, plus the embarrassment of being arrested. This is the worst and most expensive of all possible outcomes.

If you have one or more outstanding warrants for your arrest for unpaid traffic tickets, there are much more favorable outcomes possible that will cost less and eliminate additional the hassle.
