California. 8 years ago, i believe thats what the officer said

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

No

If you want to resolve this and live in another state, a motion would need to be filed to vacate the warrant and reset the court date, so you can appear to take care of this. An attorney can be hired to do this and they can appear on your behalf and try and resolve this and work out a plea deal or decide if it is worth fighting and going to trial on. The age of the case may help you so they need to look over the facts and evidence and witnesses and see if the state will be able to meet their burden at trial.
