Lithonia, GA asked in Criminal Law and DUI / DWI for Georgia

Q: Will I serve jail time for a felony warrant driving while intoxicated 12 years ago?

I have a felony warrant issued for failure to appear in Lake County court Indiana in 2007. I just found out three weeks ago. It was driving while intoxicated and I was doing community service and a bench warrant was issued for failure to appear after I moved back to Ga. I thought my community service was done. I paid all my fines and I have a driver's license in GA because I was cleared in Illinois and Indiana. Now I am afraid to go back to Indiana for fear of being arrested. They said they did not want to extradite.
