My name is Givelle Lamano, and I’m the principal attorney at Lamano Law Office. The goal of this video is to tell you what you need to do if you have a warrant.
If you have a warrant, you are on thin ice. If you get stopped by the police, detained, interrogated, and the police see that you have a warrant for your arrest, they will take you into custody. The only way that you can get out of custody is if you post bail or if you have your day in court and an attorney argues that you should be released on what’s called OR, your own recognizance. There are some situations where somebody may have a warrant for their arrest and won’t actually have a bail amount.
So, if you think you have a warrant for your arrest, give us a call. We will call our bail bondsman agents and we will call everybody in our power to find out exactly what your warrant is for and what the facts behind it involve. The best thing you can do is prepare yourself for potentially surrendering yourself and posting bail so that you do what’s called an administrative walk through.
An administrative walk through basically means you have a warrant for your arrest, you surrender, but at the same time, we’re processing your bail so when they do your fingerprinting, your booking, you get out immediately.
The last thing you want to do is get interrogated when you get taken into custody. You do not want to speak to anybody without your lawyer present. The best thing that should come out of your mouth when being interrogated is the word “attorney”, and that is it. It doesn’t matter if they put you in a room, stare at you for an hour, don’t give you anything to drink, nothing should come out of your mouth except for the word “attorney”.
If you are facing a warrant situation, give us a call and we will find out what type of a warrant you have, and what we can do to get you the best possible result to get out of this mess.
