Customer Question
I found out I...

I found out I have an active warrant and it states that my bond is 2500 I'm trying to find out if that would be a cash assurity bond

Lawyer's Assistant: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when was the warrant issued?

It's in Missouri and it was issued yesterday because I had missed court

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

I'm not sure that I have one I filled out for a public defender

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Not that I can think of

Without hearing the record that the judge made when he issued the warrant, it's not possible to know for sure whether this is cash and/or bond or cash only. The best way to find out would be to contact the clerk of the court, who could check the court papers. Alternatively, you could try a bondmsan. He would be able to find out for you as well.
