Customer Question
Yesterday I was pulled...

Yesterday I was pulled over for speeding in Missouri. The highway patrol officer stated I had a warrant out for my arrest from 16 years ago for a bad check. I was told to pay $1000 or pay $100 to a bondsman. My 9 year old daughter was with me as well. I paid the $100 and received no other information, other than the county my warrant was active. I am not sure what to do from here. I live in Oklahoma and have no information about the check, company, etc. I'm not sure what my next step should be. I imagine they will require me to be in court for something, but again, I'm not sure.

Lawyer's Assistant: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when was the warrant issued?

It is Missouri, he said the warrant was from 16 years ago, 2001.

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

No, I have not talked to anyone. I was more concerned with getting me and my daughter home.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

No, that is it, thanks so much

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
