What is a warrant?


A warrant is a process to get someone into court. It is usually generated for one of two reasons. 

1.  An arrest warrant is issued as the result of an investigation in a criminal case.
2.  A bench warrant is usually issued by a judge for either failing to appear as promised or failing to pay a fine.


Bonds are required on all warrants to insure court appearance and can range from a No Bond, Cash only, Cash/ Surety or PR.


No bond- You will have to appear in front a Judge who will set the bond. 


Cash only-  Just as it reads “cash only”.


Cash / Surety -  You will be able post a bond through a Bail Bondsman.  The Bondsman
charges you a fee and will post the bond for you.   There are several bonding companies in Sioux Falls.  Check the yellow pages under Bail Bonds or Bondsman.


PR or Personal Recognizance-   You do not have to post any money.  You will be processed through booking and released on

your own with a court date.
