Q: I am currently on probation and my probation officer filed a motion to revoke. I now have a warrant out.
I have a warrant out for a motion to revoke that is pending. It says that I have a bond but it also says
Warrant Status: Other Active. What does this mean? I don't want to get there and not be prepared. I already have a bond set for the bond amount but I want to make sure I don't need anything else. I called the Sheriffs office and they could not tell me anything.
A: You will likely be arrested when you show up to your next probation meeting if you are not arrested before then. If you hire an attorney before getting arrested, he or she may be able to get your bond reduced beforehand and arrange a surrender so that it does not cost you as much to bond out.
