St Louis Speeding Ticket Lawyer $35: At What Point Will A Traffic Ticket Go To Warrant?


There are a couple of instances in which a St Louis speeding ticket will go to warrant: 1) when you fail to appear at one of the hearings set by the court; 2) if you fail to pay your fine within the timeframe allotted by the court. A fuller description of this process is given below:

When a St Louis traffic ticket is issue by a police officer, this ticket will provide you with information as to the court date, time, and location (usually about thirty (30) days after the ticket is issued). If you do not make it to the court date (or you forget about it, or you lose the ticket, or you say the hell with it), then the judge will automatically issue a warrant for your arrest from the bench (the so-called “bench warrant”).

Once the ticket is in warrant, then the only way to get out of it is to bond out (or hire an attorney to help get you out from underneath it). But the ticket will still need to be dealt with (which is exactly why it is such a good idea to retain the services of a good St Louis speeding ticket lawyer). If you bond out, that means you pay a certain sum of money to the court to get yourself out of jail.

The other situation in which you can find yourself with an arrest warrant is when you do not pay your court fees and fines on time. If the prosecutor recommends to the judge that the ticket be reduced to a non-moving violation, then the court will assess a fine (usually in the neighborhood of $150 – $250). The court will then give you a certain period of time to pay it. And if it is not paid by then (or if you’ve made no efforts towards setting up a payment plan), then the court will issue a warrant.
