    Question What Does Return on Warrant/Initial Appearance Mean

    My question involves criminal law for the state of: Wisconsin

    Not sure under what category this belongs in. I apologize if this is in the wrong spot.
    My ex has some charges against him for disorderly conduct and criminal damage to property. The Class A misdemeanor is for criminal damage to property Statute:943.01(1) count 1 and the Class B misdemeanor is Disorderly conduct Statute:968.075(1)(a)Domestic Abuse count 2. He also has this statue:947.01 He had a court date on 11/18/2010 for this case. It came up as filed only/Initial appearance. I wasn't there so I have know idea if he was served or if he showed up. I just found this on his record Return on warrant/Initial appearance set for 11/23/2010. What in the world does that mean? Doing searches of it have yielded nothing. I have come across warrant from warrant, bench warrants, original warrant returned, Return on warrant of arrest, etc... Nothing on just the wording of Return on warrant. The reason why I want to know is because it was my property he damaged and they are issuing the disorderly conduct under domestic abuse. Any help would be appreciated.

    It may be that he surrendered himself on the warrant and was given a court date.
