Alias Charge

Birmingham, AL |
Filed under: Criminal defense

If someone's charge is listed as " Alias" what does that mean... My ex husband is in jail currently and has 4 Alias charges, what would this mean he did... and what are the reprocussioins for it. This is NOT his first time in jail, and I was curious as to what might come about from this.

  1. Alias generally means he failed to appear for a court hearing. If these alias warrants were issued while he was in jail, you should be able to have the alias warrants set aside. If the alias warrants were issued while he was not in jail, he will have to go to the courts that issued each alias and deal with each case individually.
