Thank you, D.can police or my PO come to my work in Washington and get me???Unlikely
. While a warrant is cause for the police to arrest, this is unlikely because of the following:
/bond warrants are lowest priority unless the Defendant is deemed dangerous; as such
2) officers generally do not go out of their way to arrest individuals on these warrants. While you may be arrested if stopped and/or if you simply walk into your PO's office,
3) because you are out of state, the police are unlikely to pursue you here, especially because
4) your attorney seems to be working on the case and possibly setting this up for a hearing.
In short, while one may be arrested
for this violation and transported back to await a hearing, the chances are MORE LIKELY that your attorney will work out a hearing and the matter will be heard and hopefully quashed then and there.
While it is not recommended to walk around any police stations in the meantime (an absurd recommendation, but one to get the point across), this will likely be handled at a hearing.
"I will notice it up for hearing" means that the attorney will attempt to set a hearing, have the warrant quashed, and have you present to handle the matter before the Judge.
Worrying is natural. It is okay. However, please try not to catastrophize. See here
. Our brain immediately imagines worst scenarios and runs with it. I am sure you are already imagining prison time or being on the run somewhere. Try to rationalize this out a bit. The matter is simple and you have good counsel. The Judge is strict but fair. This should be settled quickly and it likely will be fine. In a few years, this will all seem like a bad dream.
