Individual attempting to avoid the consequences of criminal charges should probably not do so by trying to evade the police. There are methods to try and restore one's good name and avoid being convicted, but skipping out on a warrant is typically not the best way to handle the situation. Recently, California police officials conducted a sweep and arrested three people who were wanted for missed court dates related to drunk driving charges.
Police officials announced the results of the sweep, which resulted in the arrests of three people who police believe pose a risk to the public for being drunk drivers. Authorities targeted several individuals during the sweep. All were individuals who had missed a court date or who were charged with violation of probation. One person was associated with a crash that had injured three pedestrians.
A police spokesperson announced that individuals who had missed a court date should go to the court on their own and avoid being tracked by officers. A warrant associated with a missed court date does not go away. Eventually, the man said, police will locate the person and arrest him or her.
California government offices fund the sweeps as a way to reduce the threat of drunk drivers on the road. A person who faces a drunk driving charge does have the ability to defend him or herself against the charges, and that person is presumed innocent until proved guilty. For extra support during the case, many people hire a defense attorney for help building a strong case.
