In most cases, if you are facing a warrant it is issued directly by a judge as a result of a failure to appear in court or refusal to obey a court order – these are known as a bench warrants. Arrest warrants can also be issued by a judge when the police or law enforcement agencies have proven that there is enough evidence or probable cause for someone to be arrested, questioned and maybe even charged in connection with a criminal offense or felony.
The best way to clear up a warrant and ensure that you will not be picked up by sheriff’s deputies at your work or home is to contact an experienced criminal defense attorney. The warrant will not simply go away, no matter how much time has passed so it is much better to take control of the situation. If you are unsure whether you have an outstanding arrest warrant, you can inquire at the Wisconsin Court System Consolidated Court Automation Program (CCAP) online, but be aware that the CCAP database is not always up to date, that it reflects Wisconsin state warrants only, and that some records may be excluded.
