A: When you find out you have an outstanding arrest warrant for yourself, the first thing to do is find out the specific terms of the warrant. Is a bond set with the warrant? If so, how much is the bond and what are the terms of the bond. If you can post the bond, you can avoid going to jail. Depending on the state, you can most likely find this information on line, or by calling the court clerk's office. An experienced criminal defense attorney can check all this out and arrange for the most seamless way to turn yourself in.
