Hi

 

It appears there may be an open arrest warrant for your arrest, if you are being contacted by lawyers to represent you

 

You can contact the local sheriff and see if there is an open warrant. Then consider if you want to surrender to it. You may then decide you want to consult with a local attorney to go with you

 

It may possible for you to be placed on probation with the money being paid to the employer

does this mean they can still come to my doorstep and get me even though im in a diffrent county? and how much is bond usually in this case?
Expert:  Samuel II replied 6 years ago.

Hi

 

If you are in another county, they may come to your home or place of employment. Otherwise, it means if you are stopped for a traffic violation, they can arrest you at that time. It depends on how badly they want you. But yes, they may, can and will come to your home

 

The bond will depend. Since you have no other criminal history, it may be between $3000 and $5000. Or with an attorney present who will guarantee your appearance in court, you could be released on your own recognizance.
