Bench Warrant from 1989 for a Violation of Penal Code section 602(j), “Trespassing” Recalled and Probation Terminated

In 1989, our client pled guilty to violating Penal Code section 602(j), “Trespassing,” and was ordered to pay a fine. Our client failed to appear on the fine payment date at the Van Nuys Clerk’s Office and a bench warrant was set for his arrest.

Our client recently hired our office to represent him on several of his criminal matters and, after reviewing his Department of Justice California Criminal History,” we discovered the outstanding warrant for this case. We then set the matter for a bench warrant recall hearing.

Our client now resides in Florida and would be extremely inconvenienced if required to be present in court for this bench warrant recall. Our office was able to appear on his behalf, request the bench warrant be recalled, process payment for the fine, and have the court order probation terminated.

This was a great result for our client, allowing him to remove the bench warrant from his record without even having to appear in court!
