Failure to Appear Warrants in Hillsborough County, FL

If you missed a court date, the court might issue a "no bond" failure to appear warrant. Don't just wait for the warrant to be entered into the system. Instead, hire an attorney to schedule an emergency hearing to surrender in front of the judge that issued the warrant so that you ask the judge to withdraw the warrant before it becomes active. 

Especially when the court understands the reason that you missed the court date, the court can just withdraw the warrant and put your case back on the docket. Your criminal defense attorney can help you resolve the underlying case on the best possible terms or fight to have all of the charges dropped.

Hillsborough County is in the process of designing a system for electronic warrants which can be issued much faster than the traditional paper warrant. Having an attorney familiar with the procedures used for fugitive warrants in this county is particularly important. Call 813-250-0500 to discuss your outstanding HCSO Warrant.
