Was A Bench Warrant Issued Against You?
If you are charged with a crime anywhere in Maryland, you have certain legal obligations you are expected to meet. If you fail to do so, a bench warrant will be issued for your arrest.
This further complicates your initial charge and increases the possibility of receiving an unfavorable outcome. If you have a bench warrant out for your arrest, consulting a criminal defense attorney now to begin working towards a solution is far more advisable than waiting until you encounter the police unexpectedly. The award-winning attorneys at The Law Offices of Thomas Maronick Jr LLC are always available to discuss your case and help you work toward a better future.

You may have a bench warrant issued for your arrest if you:
- Failing to show up for a court or sentencing appearance
- Failing to fully pay child support, fees, fines or other mandatory payments
- Violating a court order
- Neglecting to perform court-ordered community service
Possible Penalties We Want To Help You Avoid
When a bench warrant is out for your arrest, you may be taken into custody immediately should you come into contact with police, even with something as simple as a routine traffic stop. You will likely be held with or without bail until your court date. Your previous criminal history, your failure to fulfill your legal obligations, and other factors will determine how the court proceedings unfold.
Because of your lack of cooperation with the law, consequences may be more severe than your original charge warranted. One of our lawyers can help analyze the details of your case and determine the best plan of action.
