You have just seen the San Antonio police department knocking on your door. In a panic, you start trying to figure out whether you have a warrant out for your arrest. This article is about how you can effectively find out the status of any Bexar County Texas warrants that may be issued against you for criminal charges ranging from Class B misdemeanors all the way to 1st Degree felonies.
Do I Have a Warrant in San Antonio?
Go to the Bexar County Federated Search. There you will see the following three steps to take to see any cases pending against you. First you will see this window, where you will click “agree.”
Once you follow these steps, you will be able to see cases pending under your name in Bexar County. If you have a pending charge, then you can assume that you have an active warrant (if you were not yet arrested for that offense). If you have a warrant issued for your arrest, you should hire a criminal defense lawyer, and then turn yourself in. Do not turn yourself in before talking to a lawyer. Please call (210) 271-2800 for a San Antonio criminal defense lawyer from Cook & Cook Law Firm, PLLC.
On Municipal Warrants in Bexar County, If You Missed Your Ticket Court Date
Please note, that this article is not about figuring out whether you have a warrant for your arrest for any municipal tickets. If you had a setting to appear for a traffic ticket or Class C misdemeanor, and you failed to appear, then in all likelihood, you have a warrant out for your arrest. But, for small offenses, you can hire a lawyer to get the warrant lifted even without needing to appear in person. If you have missed your court date for your ticket, simply call me at (210) 271-2800.
