This is the first post in what will be a series on the handling of traffic warrants in Little Rock, Arkansas. We felt it necessary to write on this topic as many residents of our area fail to take warrants seriously and do not realize that problems can be created by not resolving the matter. The goal of our coming posts is to provide information which will help those in our state know what they should expect from the process and to assist them in selecting a criminal defense attorney. If you believe you have an outstanding warrant then contact our office today to speak with a lawyer.
We will be addressing several topics over our coming posts. Issues which we will analyze include:
- Why it is important to immediately deal with traffic warrants
- How having an outstanding warrant may lead to additional charges
- Why warrants must be dealt with even if you live outside of Arkansas
These are important topics to understand for multiple reasons. First, failing to immediately deal with a warrant can lead to your license being suspended, not being able to board an airplane, as well as additional fines. These problems are in addition to the possibility of being arrested. Second, having an outstanding arrest warrant can give police a justification for stopping you. If, during the course of such a stop, they uncover drugs or evidence of criminal activity then they will be justified in arresting you. Finally, even if you do not reside in Arkansas you must deal with any warrants as your out of state license can still be suspended and other possible consequences may ensue.
