Typical Types Of Outstanding Warrants In Connecticut
There are three important types of warrants in CT, which we will outline these below.
A CT warrant search can be issued for many reasons. Typically, if a court is presented evidence of suspicious activity or the location of a wanted person at a location, house, business or anywhere specific a court will issue a search warrant for that location. Police officers are then sent to execute the search warrant. The police may do a general search with minimal personal or may execute the warrant with a full swap team depending on the situation, crime or persons involved.
An arrest warrant is similar to a search warrant. When arrest warrant is issued by the court for a specific person the police will be notified. However, there is a big difference between a warrant search and an arrest warrant. Arrest warrants have no expiration date. Where as, a search warrant is only valid for a set time frame before it expires and can’t be used. Additionally, an individual can have multiple arrest warrants at one time for different crimes and from different Connecticut Government Agencies.
Purge and Bench Warrants
If a person is on bail and does not appear in court on time a bench warrant will be issued by the presiding Judge. Yes, bench warrant is very similar to arrest warrant in that police will start to look for the individual involved. However, it is only to bring the person before the court and expires once this has been achieved. Bench warrants are acted upon very quickly.
Failure to Appear Warrants (FTP)
If you miss a court date a Judge may issue a warrant for your arrest. This may also include a new criminal charge. Most often a failure to appear results in the Judge sending a bail commissioner’s letter notifying you of a new court date.
Violation of Probation Warrant (VOP)
If you fail to follow your probation conditions your bail officer may petition the courts to cancel your probation. An arrest and further jail time will likely follow.
