A: more info needed.

what are warrants for? how old are they? what is your record? what court? what judge? is DA contesting it?

judges want a defendant in court on some case though the law allows an attorney under 977 of the Penal Code to appear for a client on a MISDEMEANOR.

make an appt with a private lawyer asap.

A: I advise contacting a local criminal defense lawyer or Public Defender AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. A lawyer can contact the court to arrange to appear for an arraignment rather than surrendering to police custody, calendar a hearing on a warrant prior to arrest, arrange to have you turn yourself in rather than being arrested or determine the amount of outsidance bond.
