A: If you have an arrest warrant for a non-felony charge, such as contractor theft under $1,000 in Wisconsin, the process of turning yourself in typically involves going to the law enforcement agency or the county jail where the warrant was issued. It is advisable to contact an attorney before surrendering to understand your rights and get legal advice. Upon arrival, you will likely be taken into custody, processed, and booked. This involves providing personal information, being photographed and fingerprinted. After processing, you may be held temporarily in a holding cell until a bail hearing is scheduled. At the bail hearing, a judge will determine whether you can be released on bail and the amount required. If you are unable to post bail immediately, you may be held in custody until your court date.
