No, not on a "bench warrant"...You are thinking of a "arrest warrant"

Correct... They will hold you on the bench warrant if they run across you on other matters but generally not seek you out... Constables are tasked to serve bench warrants and have authority to arrest, they get paid a fixed fee per warrant served....

Sheriffs are responsible for...

Executing and returning process, meaning they serve all civil papers, such as divorce papers, eviction notices, lien notices, etc. They must also return a copy of the executed paperwork to the clerk of court.

Attending and protecting all court proceedings in the jurisdiction. A sheriff may appoint deputies to assist with all duties.

Preserve order at public polling places.

Publish announcements regarding sale of foreclosed property. The sheriff is also responsible for conducting public auctions of foreclosed property.

Serving eviction notices. The sheriff must sometimes forcibly remove tenants and their property from their homes or businesses.

Maintain the county jail and transport prisoners to and from court. The sheriff is also responsible for transporting county prisoners to state prison after they’re been sentenced by the court.

In many areas the sheriff is responsible for all law enforcement of their jurisdiction. Some towns do not have police departments, but all jurisdictions (with the exception of Alaska, Hawaii, and Connecticut) must have a sheriff’s office.

Sheriffs and their deputies have arrest powers in all areas of the county where they were elected, including all cities, towns, and villages located within the county.

Does that help you and your anus shaped mouth and that load of barnyard manure you pack around on your shoulders that you call your brain?

Thanks "sprockets" one would think some "folks" would be able to figure out certain matters on their own.

I wasn't in the mood to go into full details.

Slowly read post #7 again and fix your sloppy headline. Once again, only one set of quotation marks are needed.

Generally yes but a Judge can issue a bench warrant for pretty much anything they wish... For an example a person could be indited for a crime and the judge can issue an arrest warrant which would trigger the all PD's to actively seek out the individual for arrest... Or he could issue a Bench Warrant that is placed in the data bases and it sits waiting for someone to come into contact with PD at which time they would be taken into custody or the PD can send a Serve Order to the Constable's office in the area where the person resides and the Constable office will go to their home or other listed locals and attempt to serve the warrant and take the person into custody... If the person refuses to be taken then the constable can call PD and charge with an additional resisting charge....

Do they usually take you to Jail for having one?

All depends if there is a set bail or the prosecutors office allows O.R. or not .... But generally you would be taken to the police station and booked then it all depends on what the warrant was for, or if you pissed someone off in the system.... I would say most would see a over night in the klink and about 30% several days until they were brought before the judge....
