Hi and thank you for using JustAnswer!

I am sorry to learn of these circumstances. Do you have the contact information for the court that has issued the warrant?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
It is in Chisago County in Minnesota

Thank you. When are you going to go back there?

Expert:  JB Umphrey replied 4 years ago.
Very well.

Call the court first and ask them when do they handle walk-in arraignments.

Then go to court when they tell you. Go to the court, check-in, appear before the judge, plead guilty, and the judge will assess whatever fines/costs s/he deems to be appropriate.

If I went there as soon as they open would I see the judge tomorrow or would they set a court date?
Expert:  JB Umphrey replied 4 years ago.
Each court is different in how they scheduled their dockets and the availability of the judge or magistrate to handle walk-ins. This is why I suggested that you first call them to find out when they handle walk in arraignments. I'd hate to see you get there first thing in the morning and then sit around all day waiting.
