currently I got out jail and now another charge has come up which I feel is bogus. I moved from the state of the offense to get my life together. I cant get a job as now so i'm told I have a warrant out for my arrest. I wish to resolve this issue and of course currently I have no money and am staying with multiple friends. how can I find the charge with out money? how can I proceed to clear this matter up? I have talked to a few lawyers and they advised not to come back to the state and put them on retainer. I just need some answers on how to find out the charges against me and how to proceed to amend and or dismiss them. please help
Thank you for your question. Be sure to go ahead and bookmark www.nateanswers.com for future questions.Nothing can be done with the new charges, whether legitimate or not, until you are served with that warrant and appear in the state. There is simply no other way to address them.I am unsure how having the warrant affects your job prospects. Private employers cannot see that you have a warrant. Warrants are kept private so that people cannot run who have them. Only the government and law enforcement can see that you have a warrant. I am sorry to be unable to offer a different answer, but you're best bet for resolving the outstanding warrant is to save money, hire a lawyer in the other state, and turn yourself in so that you can face them and work out whatever the problem is.Please remember to only rate my answer when you are 100% satisfied.
