Felony arrest warrant for friend who doesn't know why she has one.. Has dealt with authorities after the date warrant was issued and was never held or told about warrant
It means the Judge who signed the warrant does not want her to be given a citation with a court date. If she's picked up on the warrant she must be kept in custody and brought to court. She may be able to bail out.
My colleague is correct. If she gets picked up she will be held until brought before judge. Get an attorney to deal with this warrant and bring her in. It's better if you bring her in , rather than get picked up!

It means the jail can't just release him, with a date to appear in court, when he's arrested.
He will either have to post bail or wait until his court date to be released.
This is NOT legal advice. It is a general discussion of legal principles by a California lawyer, and does not create an attorney/client relationship. You should always consult PRIVATELY with an attorney.
