It doesn't matter if you've committed an offence or not, if there's an arrest warrant out on you and the police come looking
for you they will arrest you and drag you off to the station.
If this happens then you will get a record that shows that the police had to search you out and arrest you. When you get to
court the judge will see your record before she sees you and she will form an opinion about you based on your record. Do you
think that the fact that the police had to use their resources to track you down will go in your favour? I don't think so.
Think about how different it will be in court if you were to hand yourself in before the cops come looking for you. The Judge
will naturally have a more favourable opinion about you and your court experience will be a lot nicer. The problem is how
do you know if you have a warrant for arrest issued on you in the first place?
An arrest warrant can be put on you any time for offences anywhere
Skipping bail or failing to turn up in court when you are supposed to are obvious and certain ways to get a warrant issued
for your arrest. If you get caught in a speed trap or commit some other traffic offence you could get a warrant without even
being aware of it until the police knock at your door.
It seems that hardly a day goes by without hearing stories of people getting their identities stolen and the problem seems
to be getting worse and worse. If someone steals your identity they might help themselves to the money from your bank account
or they might commit an offence in your name. The offence could be anything from parking a car in the wrong place to murder.
If the offender gets away and the police have been given your stolen identity then who do you think they will come looking
for? Yes you of course and if it's a serious crime then they might do a little more than knock on your door to apprehend you.
