Civil Bench Warrants


If a defendant fails to show or appear on the day set in the order of appearance, the court will issue an order to show cause. The defendant will be required to appear and show cause as to why he should not be punished for Contempt of Court or for failure to appear.  If the defendant does not appear at the hearing on the order to show cause, a bench warrant is used by the court and the Davis County Sheriff’s Office is directed to arrest him for Contempt of Court.  The Davis County Sheriff’s Office actively processes civil bench warrants. While these are warrants of arrest, we prefer to make arrangements to accept bail as opposed to taking persons into custody.
