A Bench Warrant is a warrant issued by a judge ordering law enforcement to arrest a person and bring them before the court. The process of voluntarily appearing in court and asking the judge to cancel or “quash” the warrant is called Warrant Recall or Recalling a Warrant.
A Bench Warrant is a serious matter because law enforcement can arrest anyone with a bench warrant at any time. If that happens, the person is taken to jail and held there until they are brought before the judge that issued the warrant. Sometimes, it is several days before the person is finally brought to court.
