What is the warrant for?
Do you know when the warrant was entered?
What state was the warrant entered in?
Thanks for the information.
It is up to the court that issued the warrant as to how long the warrant is valid. Warrants can remain valid for SEVERAL years.... Also, if you are arrested in Florida, it will be up to Texas as to whether Texas wants to extradite you back. Texas will have to pay the costs if it wants to extradite you. So.....even if you get arrested in Florida, there is a chance that you may not be extradited. With the economy being as it is, the prosecutors and police have budget restraints and may not extradite on low level felonies.
But.....warrants CAN remain valid for many years. The only way to be sure that the warrant is canceled is to turn yourself in, or be arrested and extradited back to Texas.
I hope you find this information useful and that you PRESS THE GREEN ACCEPT BUTTON so that I can get credit for answering the question. Thank you.
