Grove City, OH asked in Criminal Law and Identity Theft for Ohio

Q: I discovered I have warrant for my arrest. This was absolutely not me. My brother stole my identity and the report shows

He used my social security number and got away with letting me get a M1 theft charge. When I found out I immediately called the sheriff department. They read to me part of the Incident report which proved it wasn't brother. It was stated he was driving his girlfriend's car(which is how I know it was him) and gave a description that sounds nothing like me. I can not afford a lawyer and I can not afford to go to jail for the warrant I will lose my job. How do I get this situation resolved? I'm completely fine with filing charges against him for stealing my identy
