Is it a misdemeanor or a felony? Normally that's a misdemeanor charge but it can be a felony under the right situation.

Misdemeanor , they thought it was dropped
Criminal Lawyer: Dwayne B., Lawyer replied 1 year ago

Usually you have to be arrested and then bond out to handle a warrant but since this is in a different state it isn't likely they are going to extradite her to Texas from VA. Her best to to get released is to hire a lawyer in Texas in the same city in which the warrant was issued and then get the lawyer to handle getting the warrant withdrawn or a bond issued.

Once she has a Texas lawyer then the local judge and DA will be more likely to work with her to get released but she is going to have to appear in Texas at some point to get it handled.

Does she need an extradition lawyer
Criminal Lawyer: Dwayne B., Lawyer replied 1 year ago

Not yet. She may have to get one in VA at some point but she will still need a Texas lawyer and if she can avoid them trying to extradite her then that is better.

If they extradite her then she is responsible for all the costs which are usually pretty expensive.

She needs a criminal defense lawyer in TX. City to lift warrant so VA will release her on bond ?
Criminal Lawyer: Dwayne B., Lawyer replied 1 year ago

Yes, basically.

Criminal Lawyer: Dwayne B., Lawyer replied 1 year ago

She still has to have someone in VA as well to handle the VA charges

Basically ? I posted bail today, they wouldn't release her pending warrant in TX ?
Criminal Lawyer: Dwayne B., Lawyer replied 1 year ago

It doesn't have to be a criminal defense lawyer in Texas but that is best. Also, it may be that the lawyer can't get the "warrant lifted" but they may be able to make arrangements for her to make bond from VA for the Texas warrant so technically it isn't what you stated but it basically works the same.

Can a lawyer get the bond lifted promptly ? The TX warrant
Criminal Lawyer: Dwayne B., Lawyer replied 1 year ago

That depends on a lot of factors. Which judge it is in front of, if the judge is there, if the judge will even allow it, if the DA will agree to it, etc.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
OK, I'll get lawyers both places. Do you have any other advice ?
Criminal Lawyer: Dwayne B., Lawyer replied 1 year ago

No, other than just making sure she doesn't miss any dates in Texas because if she does then if she gets arrested in another state they will almost certainly extradite her but they will yank her around and make her sit in jail for 60 days or so before she will even be eligible for bond.
