This site has some technical issues tonight and I am having difficulties posting my answers. So I apologize for any delays or replies you may feel are too short.
The statute I sent you tells you that the penalty for absconding depends on what the underlying offense is. So if you were on extended supervision for burglary, it sounds like you you violated the terms of your probation or parole. So it would be a felony absconder warrant, and the odds of you being held for extradition if you are stopped would be high. However, many people choose to risk it.
States do have ways of getting your attention though, even if they don't come after you. One way is to suspend your driver's license. Another would occur if somewhere down the road you apply for certain state benefits, like unemployment. The warrant would keep you from collecting.
So it's always better to come back sooner rather than later and voluntarily rather than involuntarily. But that said, with an absconder warrant, and a violation of the conditions of your sentence
on your burglary case, the likelihood you will be incarcerated and resentenced on the burglary is just about 100% if youve been away for any length of time without a super reason. It's not a pretty picture, and it unfortunately doesn't get better. If you do choose to surrender yourself on the warrant, make sure you don't do so without a lawyer to make some kind of argument for your continued liberty or for reasonable bail.
