Frequenstly Asked Questions about Warrants.
After being arrested for a crime you are given the opportunity to pay a fine or appear before a Judge. If you do not comply with either of these methods, a warrant may be issued for your arrest for the original crime committed. In addition, an arrest warrant can be issued from evidence collected in a crime report submitted to the District Attorney indicating possible guilt. This is an Arrest Warrant.
If you fail to appear at jail / the Adult Detention Facility, a bench warrant may be issued by the court.
If you have an active warrant, please go to your local police department to turn yourself in and get the warrant taken care of.
You will be placed under arrest on the warrant and advised of the specific charges against you. Depending on the severity of the warrant, you will either receive a citation with a new court date and time to appear, or be booked into the Adult Detention Facility. If the warrant is from a county other than Will County, you may be transferred to an additional detention facility after being booked in. The warrant will be cleared from the system.
No it will not. The warrant will remain active in system until it has been served.
If you are aware that you have a warrant or suspect that you do, it is to your benefit to take care of it immediately. If you do not take care of it, it may be served at your home or at a public place, at the grocery store, etc. If you are driving a vehicle at time of arrest your vehicle may be towed.
