A bench warrant is a warrant directed by a judge to law enforcement officials to arrest and/or hold an individual because they did not appear for their scheduled court date and/or failed to obey a court order.
Bench warrants are a common occurrence because sometimes individuals fail to remember, they may be stressed out/overwhelmed at the thought of appearing in court, or they may have been unable to appear because of sickness/work/travel.
Whatever the reason, it is not a good idea to duck the legal system, the warrant squad will find you and make you pay for not cooperating. it is also not a good idea to turn yourself in, people who do this very often say the wrong thing and wind up in even worse trouble.
