Why you need a McKinney arrest warrant attorney

Are you worried about the money? For a very modest fee, our attorneys will do all the legwork regarding your McKinney arrest warrant. You don’t even have to go to court! When you allow a traffic violation to move in to warrant status, the options available to you become extremely limited. Now, the only way to resolve your McKinney arrest warrant is to:

  1. Pay the MAXIMUM fine of the ticket.
  2. Post a cash bond for the MAXIMUM amount of the ticket PLUS court costs.

As knowledgeable attorneys who handle McKinney arrest warrant cases frequently, we would never advise our clients to select either of the above options. Why? When you pay the maximum fine of the ticket, you’re admitting guilt and therefore adding a conviction to your driving record. When this happens, you rack up points with the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles – rack up too many points and you may have to pay penalties or even risk having your license suspended. Also, in this day in age, when the labor force is so large, many employers are doing more and more extensive background checks. The less you have on your record (even just your driving record), the better.

The second option of posting a cash bond for your McKinney arrest warrant is just as bad. Not only will you be paying upwards of several hundred dollars to the court, but your money will be tied up for months while your traffic ticket is being resolved. Even if you are found not guilty, that’s hundreds of dollars tied up in the McKinney court system for as long as it takes.

Types of McKinney Arrest Warrants

Generally, there are two types of McKinney arrest 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 arrest 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 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.

Arrest 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 McKinney arrest warrant roundups. What is a McKinney arrest warrant roundup? This is when cities and jurisdictions devise and implement plans to actively pursue the arrest of anyone who has outstanding arrest warrants for traffic citations. However, some jurisdictions don’t bother with arrest warrant roundups, but rather have a year –round program to actively arrest anyone with outstanding arrest 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 McKinney arrest warrants who were arrested during routine traffic stops, at work or at home. Law enforcement officers do not discriminate when it comes to outstanding McKinney arrest warrants. They will show up at the homes and/or work places of anyone who has outstanding McKinney arrest warrants, and arrest them. Don’t let this happen to you!

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.
