Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
No. But, a warrant is likely in effect and will not expire until the matter is resolved. So, your best course of action is to resolve it now.
You might be able to do this yourself by contacting the court and getting the contact information for the prosecuting/district attorney handling your case. They probably won't know as the staff has undoubtedly changed since your citation. Just be persistent and ask the office who you should talk to in order to negotiate a resolution.
You can also hire a local attorney to handle it. It's possible that he/she could resolve it without you even appearing. You can locate a local attorney by contacting the Colorada Bar Association legal referall service (google).

Thanks for the advise. I actually think that I went thru alcohol accessment here in Wis for this offence to get my license. But...I hate to stir anything up.
