A: Your Indiana criminal case and the original state criminal warrant must be handled by the Indiana licensed criminal law attorney immediately, however, even generally, for a regular warrant quashing the defendant must be physically present.

Thus, you need to discuss your Indiana criminal case with the counsel of record there or retain an Indiana licensed attorney to handle that issue without delay.
