San Luis Obispo County California arrest warrants are issued for a number of reasons such as theft, domestic violence, physical and sexual assault, homicide, drug possession, extortion, fraud, larceny and more.In other words, active warrants are inserted into the picture every time that a crime is committed and the perpetrator of the act is at large.

However, it would be a mistake to assume that warrants for arrests are only issued in connection with felonies. Even in case of misdemeanors and also when a person is in contempt of court, an order for his arrest will be issued. The only difference here is that misdemeanor warrants have limited reach like the directives issued for the detention of people who have dishonored a court verdict. These are called bench warrants.

They are restrictive in nature like misdemeanor warrants. When it comes to misdemeanor arrest orders, these are issued on the basis of probable cause like active warrants from San Luis Obispo County which are released against felonious acts. In contrast, bench warrants are issued by the court of its own decision without any interference of law enforcement in the matter.

The reason for this is given as such- because the magistrate already knows that a crime has been committed when a person ignores bail conditions or a court order, there is no need to further prove his guilt by submitting a probable cause affidavit. Bench orders for arrest and detention directives issued in case of misdemeanors can only be executed within the issuing county and often during daytime.

As opposed to this, outstanding warrants from San Luis Obispo County can be served in any part of the county and the state that they have been released in and also in any other area of the country if the crime in question was a heinous felony. When the suspect is apprehended in any other part of the state or nation, he is deported back to the county in which the offense occurred to stand trial.
