Q: What am I able to do legally, if I am currently on probation in FL. But, I have open warrants in CO?
Before moving to FL 2 years ago, I was on probation in CO. I moved from CO to FL because I was living on the streets, and starting to get into bad habits. I moved to FL to get my life back on track. When I first got to FL I was still drinking a lot, and ended up getting a felony battery charge, and am on a two year probation sentence in FL. I will be done with probation in June of 2021. I am on probation in FL, and have 3 active warrants in CO. So I am unable to get/keep a job because I cant pass a background check. I have kept myself out of trouble for almost 2 years now, and I need to know what I can do to clear my active warrants in CO, if there is anything I can do. Short of paying 10,000 dollars for a lawyer. Because, like I said, I can't even get a job at Krispy Kreme...I am stuck and really need some advice, any help will be greatly appreciated. If you need more information I can glady give it to you...Thank you so much for reading, and God Bless!
A: You are going to need to speak to an attorney in CO about those charges. Depending on what the charges are, there may be a way to take care of them or fight them without you having to go back. An attorney who is local to where the charges originated may be willing to take a look at them and tell you what your options are. You need someone familiar with CO law and local procedures. Actions that pre-date your probation should not violate you. I's better to inquire now than to wait. Then you can make some informed decisions.
