Thank you for the additional information. If there is an active warrant, you can file a motion with the court, asking that it be lifted and the matter set before the court, so you can appear and answer to the charge. The other option is to just turn yourself in and post the bond, if there is one, on the warrant. Once the matter is before the court, I think you should strongly consider fighting this charge. The reason I suggest that it based upon the age of the case. It is over 21 years old, which leads me to believe that the officer(s) involved may no longer be with the department and even if they are, that they do not remember the incident, to properly testify to it. If that is the case, the State would have to drop/dismiss the case, which would mean no sentence
would be imposed. You should retain a criminal
defense attorney to represent your legal interest and handle the case for you, so they can look into the facts and see what legal defenses you have to raise and how to fight this.
