Casper, WY asked in Criminal Law for Wyoming

Q: If i have a warrant for a petty crime in iowa but live in wyoming, can i still get a wyoming state identification card?

or will the state of wyoming refuse to set me up with an id? i don't want a state license, just a state id. i messed up on my probation back home just didn't get everything done in time so the state of iowa put out a bench warrant for my arrest in iowa. but i now need to renew my state id and i live in wyoming permanently. I need to know if the state of wyoming will let me get an identification card without hassle? what should i expect?

ALSO: I DON'T WANT DETAILS ON HOW I SHOULD ADDRESS MY WARRANT. I ALREADY KNOW ABOUT THAT. MY QUESTION IS ASKING IF THE DMV HERE IN WYOMING WILL STILL GRANT ME A STATE IDENTIFICATION CARD...THAT IS ALL I AM WONDERING.

A: With an active warrant for your arrest, you can be arrested at any time, and in any place. That is what you should expect. What you need to do now is hire an attorney in Iowa to address that active warrant. Without doing that, you will be constantly looking over your shoulder.
