A: You will need to vacate the default and get put back on the trial list. The prosecutor will normally agree to this. Then we would proceed by getting discovery and analyzing your case. Sometimes older cases raise problems for the state as witnesses (police) may have retired and moved away. At a minimum memories fade over time.
It is probably best to hire an attorney who has experience in handling these cases and helping you vacate the default/ warrant.
