There are essentially two types of warrants, one for arrest of a specific person, and the second for searching of a particular place for specific items.

A warrant can lie in wait years after the reason for it is long gone from your memory.

In Louisiana, any magistrate or judge who believes an offense was committed may issue a warrant. 

The “probable cause” can sometimes be defined as missing a court date. Maybe you forgot a traffic ticket, or just avoided the law.

Leaving Louisiana is no solution - The Fugitive Warrant Department of the State Law Enforcement Center also detains violators in other states.

Between 2007 and 2008, the FWD unit returned 1,037 people arrested in other states to Louisiana.

A warrant remains valid, and is often served at inopportune moments, such as a visit to city hall, during a routine traffic stop, or perhaps at your place of business.

Whatever the circumstance, you need professional assistance in clearing a warrant from your name. Sometimes it is a case of mistaken identity, or perhaps the warrant was not valid in the first place, or remained active even after you settled the court matter. If served on you at the end of the week, a long weekend in jail can result - all of which is not necessary.

Greg Gouner can assist you in permanently clearing warrants, helping you to understand the seriousness of them, and assisting in any matters pertaining to them.

Warrants in Louisiana



When told there is a warrant for your arrest, about the only thing you can do on your own is check to make sure they have your proper legal name and correct address. If these are not full and correct, they may have the wrong person. Warrants are presented by mistake to persons at mistaken addresses, and sometimes to someone with a very similar or identical name. Warrants are specific legal documents, and must be correct. Always read a search warrant to make sure the specifics are correct.

Other than making sure they have the right information, cooperate fully and call for legal help.

If you suspect there is a warrant out for your arrest, you can contact local law enforcement authorities to find out, but they will usually make you come in.

If they find a warrant, they will hold you in custody.

The best advice is to speak with an attorney immediately to discuss your rights and legal responsibility.

Sample warrant from Texas.

Don't mess around with warrants. You can run, but you really cannot hide. And when the "long arm of the Law" catches up, it can be a mess, cost you money and time, and take on a life of its own.
