  1. Sounds like the bondsman turned in the bond - got off - surrendered - so there is a warrant for the person.

  2. The bond company went off the bond and a capias warrant was issued for the defendant. There are several different ways an attorney may be able to fix this. I would hire one asap if you don't already have one.

    Macy Jaggers's answer to a legal question on Avvo does not establish an attorney-client relationship. Ms. Jaggers offers everyone a free consultation to discuss their case.

  3. Whoever this relates to likely has an open arrest warrant now. Many judges in New Braunfels say these words (that you have listed here) in court when someone fails to show up. I know the judges here. My practice is in New Braunfels. You can email me at or call 830.237.6191 if you need to get in touch with me to discuss this further. Thanks for contacting us.

    The answer provided by counsel in the AVVO forum is not intended to create an attorney-client relationship. The information is opinion only and given free of charge without full understanding of all facts and the law applicable to any question-poster's individual circumstances. The best advice is to take the question from this volunteer forum to a more formal communication with a practitioner in the specialty area indicated by the nature of the claim.

  4. Be prepared to go to jail or post a new bond.

  5. It would appear that the bondsman has filed an affidavit for realese of surety, meaning the bond company has gone off the bond and requested the court to place a hold if in custody elsewhere or a warrant if the client is not yet in custody.
