Rancho Cucamonga Criminal Court Information

If you suspect you have a warrant out for your arrest for any criminal matter, you can find out via the Rancho Cucamonga district court website, various third-party public records providers, a local bail agency, or the local Sheriff’s department. If you confirm a warrant exists for your arrest, your next move should be to speak with a criminal defense attorney as soon as possible.

What to Expect in a Misdemeanor Case

Misdemeanors are less severe than felonies but can still easily lead to fines, prison time, and other severe penalties. Additionally, repeat misdemeanor charges may qualify for felony-level sentencing. After arrest, a suspect moves through the booking process and must remain in confinement until arraignment, until he or she posts bail, or until a judge allows the suspect to leave on his or her own recognizance. During arraignment the suspect has the opportunity to enter a plea, which will lead to the next phase of the criminal justice process.
