enerally, there are two types of warrants that get issued by the San Diego Superior Court.
Arrest warrants are issued when there is probable cause to believe the person noted on the warrant has committed an offense.
Bench warrants are issued when a person fails to appear in court or fails to complete something the court has ordered them to perform, such as enrollment in programs or submitting proof of completing a court ordered program.
It is important to address any warrants you may have to avoid an embarrassing situation when your warrant is discovered. Even if you do not commit another offense, if anyone you are with commits even a minor traffic violation it could result in the police officer asking for your personal information and the discovery of a warrant. To avoid being taken into custody for something like this, you should seek to recall the warrant in court.
