Bench Warrant Issued for DMX Due to Failed Court Appearance

By: Wallin & Klarich

For Rapper DMX, rehab does not halt court proceedings.

Admitting yourself into a rehab facility will not halt court proceedings and could result in a bench or arrest warrant being issued against you. Such is the case with rapper DMX. Once again he was a no-show to court today because he admitted himself to an undisclosed residential rehabilitation center. The presiding judge issued a bench warrant for DMX’s arrest and raised the bond to $120,000 cash. The 37-year-old is facing charges of drug possession, identity theft and animal cruelty stemming from three felony arrests.

If you are being prosecuted for any type of case, and you fail to appear in court after a mandatory appearance, the judge will most likely issue a warrant against you.
