  • How soon can a criminal defense lawyer get an arrest warrant put aside for failure to appear in court for DWLS?

    I want to know how soon can a defense lawyer put as a warrant for my arrest? my bond is a $1000 dollars and its my second time DWLS. The first time it was a criminal infraction and now its a second degree misdemeanor

    Dean’s Answer

    You have to appear in front of the judge and no judge will withdraw a warrant unless the person wanted is standing before them. It will depend upon the judge's calendar and the attorneys ability to get the defendant in front of the judge. Your attorney may be able to handle your case at the motion to withdraw the warrant.
