RWOB? What does it mean?When someone has RWOB attached to their criminal case in Bexar County, Texas it means that they have been Remanded Without Bond and that a warrant has been issued for their arrest. Usually, this occurs when someone has been on some type of release but has violated the conditions of release. So, if you are on bail or on bond or on deferred adjudication or community supervision and you messed up or your pre-trial officer or probation officer THINKS you messed up they are going to remand you without bond.
How Can I Fix RWOB?There are two ways to fix a warrant. There is the easy way and the hard way. The hard way is to get caught or to turn yourself in without representation. When this happens a magistrate judge cannot set a bond for because the judge that has your case has ordered you held without bond. There is, however, an easy way. The easy way is to hire a lawyer and fix the warrant on your own terms. When you hire a lawyer the lawyer will approach the judge and issue the warrant. The lawyer will explain your side of the story and tell the judge why it is that you may have had the violation or why the probation officer or pre-trial officer is mistaken about your violation. The lawyer will then give input to the judge regarding the bond amount that is appropriate. Some judges will not set a bond until they know that the accused is about to be turned in, and so it is important to work out a plan with your lawyer before you turn yourself in.
