March Madness

 

March Madness is upon us.  No, I’m not talking about all the great college basketball games you’re probably watching these days.  The March Madness I’m referring to is known as The 2015 Great Texas Warrant Roundup.  Unlike the March Madness associated with basketball, the 2015 Great Texas Warrant Roundup is part of a

yearly event, conducted by hundreds of law enforcement agencies across the state, working together.

Unfortunately, these police officers aren’t interested in playing basketball with you.  To the contrary, if you have warrants out for your arrest, they could be looking for you at your home, office, or school to arrest you and take you to jail.  Where you might be able to play basketball.  From what I understand, the Dallas County Jail has a court on almost every floor.

This form of March Madness began on March 7th, and is ongoing.  Whether you have an outstanding warrant for a serious felony, misdemeanor, or even a traffic ticket warrant, you are at risk of being taken to jail.  However, there is good news.  By taking immediate action, you may be able to avoid arrest, and have your warrant removed without ever going to jail.

During March Madness (again, the 2015 Great Warrant Roundup variety, not the basketball one), one phone call to a lawyer can be the first step to resolving your warrant.  A criminal defense attorney who also posts attorney bail bonds can advise you on how not to get caught up in March Madness.  Frequently, in felony and misdemeanor cases, it’s possible to have arrest warrant set aside by means of a personal recognizance bond, which may avoid your being taken into custody.  In most traffic ticket cases, attorney bonds can be posted without your ever setting foot in a courtroom.

Don’t end up in the back seat of a police car!  March Madness is here, in the form of the 2015 Great Texas Warrant Roundup.  Take action now.  Before it’s too late.
