Tampa Man's Violation of Probation Warrant

The Possibility of Avoiding Jail after a VOP "No Bond" Warrant

A felony violation of probation (VOP) allegation usually results in a "no bond" warrant. After the arrest on the warrant, the person arrested must wait in jail to see the court to resolve the case. Many individuals want to avoid going into custody altogether after a violation of probation allegation. In certain cases, an experienced criminal defense attorney may be able to assist you in getting the "no bond" warrant withdrawn so that you can avoid going into custody altogether. In other cases, your attorney may be able to appear with you at first appearance court which may be schedule within 8-24 hours of your arrest depending on when you turn yourself in on the warrant. At the first appearance the court may grant you a bond, especially in those cases in which you are not a flight risk, and the allegation of violation of probation is for a technical violation or a new misdemeanor arrest.

Nice piece of information. But my question is that what are the conditions and circumstances to contest a warrant without even being taken into the custody? I mean while staying into the circle of laws.
