How do I know if I have a warrant out for my arrest?

I need to know if I'm going to get arrested. Do they publish that somewhere? Should I call the police station and ask? Should I get an attorney and walk into the police station with them?

    Getting an attorney is a good start. If you can't afford one, go ask at the police station, but they will probably arrest you and keep you until the next day the court is open, so 1) be prepared to spend the night in jail, and 2) don't go on Friday; you'll be in jail all weekend. Make arrangements for bail if you can, but of course you don't know how much it will be.

    You can call the police and ask. They may or may not tell you. My recommendation is to have an attorney if you can if or when you turn yourself in. If there is a warrant, it's always best to turn yourself in as soon as possible. Keep in mind, you don't have to answer questions when you turn yourself in. Definitely wait until you consult with a lawyer if you want to make a statement.

    Arrest warrants are not public, but bench warrants for failing to appear in court might be searched at court records on An attorney can assist you with evaluating the prosecution's case, any defenses that you might have, and any plea offer that might be made, so that you can decide whether to plea bargain or go to trial.
