Las Vegas Bench Warrants

What is a Bench Warrant?

Most bench warrants are issued by judges. The reason why it’s called a bench warrant is because a judge sits on a so-called “bench”; hence the term: “bench warrant”

A court may issue a bench warrant as well. For instance, if you fail to pay a fine or fail to appear in court, through the judge’s power, a court may issue a bench warrant for your arrest.

In some cases, and especially in Las Vegas, Nevada, a court or judge will deliver a bench warrant to a police officer, a marshal, or a constable for enforcement of the bench warrant.

When a bench warrant has been issued, it will remain active until a warrant lawyer quashes the warrant by either filing a motion or appearing in court on behalf of the person named in the warrant. Alternatively, a bench warrant can be quashed when the person named in the warrant is arrested and taken into custody.
