What is a Warrant Walkthrough?

A Warrant Walkthrough

Posted 5 years ago by Jim Titus

If a warrant has been issued for your arrest, it’s debatable whether or not you should turn yourself into the police. Doing so, however, may have some benefits, including the possibility of a warrant walkthrough. Regardless of where you stand on the issue of turning yourself in, you should understand what a warrant walkthrough is and the possible consequences.

What you Need to Know about a Warrant Walkthrough

If you turn yourself into the police because a warrant is out for your arrest, you might be able to receive a warrant walkthrough arranged by a bail bond agent. Rather than having you spend time in jail after you turn yourself in, the walkthrough is set up ahead of time to allow you to be booked and then released.

Depending on the state and jurisdiction, a warrant walkthrough may be possible for a variety of charges. Before contacting a bail bond agent, you should obtain several pieces of information to help speed up the process. They include:

A Warrant Walkthrough

• The defendant’s name

• The possible charges

• Contact information for the defendant, police station, and/or courthouse

• The bond amount and any conditions of the bond

A bail bond agent will be able to tell you if a warrant walkthrough is possible or advisable in your case.

As you are discussing that possibility, talk about whether or not it’s a good idea to turn yourself in for the alleged crime. Turning yourself in shows good faith on your part and may reflect positively on the results of your trial. If you’re tired of worrying about being stopped every time you drive, or are worried about getting arrested in front of your coworkers or children, being proactive may be the right solution for you. On the other hand, there is no requirement to turn yourself in, and doing so could generally appear as an admission of guilt.

Either way, it would be wise to consult with your attorney beforehand. It’s a complicated decision that should not be taken lightly, so talk with your bail bond agent and attorney for more specific information.
