Do I have an arrest warrant? This is a question we field almost every week at Stowers & Sarcone, PLC. When a typical arrest warrant is filed in Iowa, it is sealed. That means you cannot see it on Iowa Courts Online. Many people do not know for sure if they have a warrant until the cops show up.
So what can you do if you suspect there is a warrant our for your arrest? Well, you can start by calling us. It maybe very difficult for you to determine if you have an arrest warrant. Often the police, the jail, the prosecutor or any other person you call, cannot or will not reveal that information to you. However as your lawyer, we are in a better position to obtain that information. The same people who will not give you any information will often give us the information. Thus, it makes sense to hire a lawyer.
The other upside is that we can work with the police to arrange to have you cited and released, or for a turn in date, or avoid the warrant altogether. If all else fails, we can determine your bond amount and arrange for a bondsman to bail you out as soon as you go into custody. In short, if you think there is a warrant for your arrest, you should call us. We can help you find out and work through your legal issues. Do not hesitate! Call 515.224.7446.
