Types of Warrants

by Robert Wise

Alias Warrant

If a subject fails to make an initial appearance after a citation is issued and alias warrant will be issued.

Bench Warrant

If a subject sets a court date, and then fails to show at scheduled court date a bench warrant will be issued.

Capias Warrant

If a subject has a guilty judgment either through court appearance, plea, or arraignment in jail, but then fails to pay the fine within the required time period a capias warrant will be issued.

Parole Revocation Warrant (Blue Warrant)

The issuance of a parole revocation warrant is as follows:

"The supervising parole officer submits a report of violation when an offender on parole or mandatory release status is believed to have violated terms or conditions of supervised release. The report of violation is what determines whether a warrant will be issued. Personnel within the Parole Division will review the report of violation and determine if there is probable cause to believe a violation of parole conditions has occurred. If such a finding is made, and no other suitable sanctions appear warranted, a warrant is issued to detain the offender pending an administrative hearing. The warrant is typically published in the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) and/or the Texas Crime Information Center (TCIC) fugitives warrant database.

Once an offender is detained on a parole warrant and the sheriff having custody has notified the Parole Division of arrest, the Parole Division determines whether to place the case into the hearing process. If the violations are administrative only (no criminal law violations pending disposition in a court of law), or include adjudicated charges (a conviction) and the offender has discharged any imposed sentence, a request is made for a hearing to be scheduled. The sheriff having custody is also required to notify the Parole Division when criminal charges have been dismissed and when any imposed sentence resulting from a conviction has been discharged. In instances where there are criminal charges pending adjudication, the Parole Division will normally defer the revocation process pending final disposition of the criminal charges."
