Tucson, AZ asked in Constitutional Law, Criminal Law and Federal Crimes for North Carolina

Q: I just found out that a police report from 9 years ago says that I have a warrant for my arrest!

I recently got a copy of a police report dated back in 2009, but it states that a "warrant would be issued." I dont know why the police wrote that on there! In 2009, I called the police for domestic violence and they claimed that I lied when I didn't. They took me to the police station to get my statement and let me go home soon afterwards. Is there anything that could be done about this? It was 10 years ago and that investigator never told me that I'd get arrested. He just said that the bf should move out, which he ended up doing. It seems like it is a mistake, but if it's not they never disclosed that they wanted me arrested for supposedly lying. Can I call the police and ask if they can take that part out?

A: BEST to talk to an experienced Criminal Defense Lawyer where the Warrant for Arrest has been issued.

These things tend to be a bit complicated.

Many, if not most, defense lawyers in NC give free advice to start. We call that a free, confidential consultation.

GREAT QUESTION though.

Best of luck to you,
