Q: I currently have multiple active warrants from multiple departments for felony criminal charges. What should I do next
I'm currently wanted for alleged motor vehicle theft, car jacking, theft, etc in NJ. I also have a current probation violation out of pa, as well as on going felony court proceedings in New Hampshire. I know I can't run forever and the longer I do the worse it gets. The Pa warrant is a full extradition warrant as I signed a waive upon being released on probation with out of state address. I wanna get things taken care of and understand the possible out come from it. I'm already a convicted felon with a long jacket of charges stretching from Oregon to NJ. As well as had two separate state prison sentences I've served before. I'm more or less looking to handle things collectively and not have to max out one states sentence and transfer to start the next. I know once I'm there I'm there because NJ bail reform classifies me 6-6 due to flight and criminal background
A: If you truly want to take care of this you need to hire lawyers in each state and then follow their advise on how to turn yourself in to make this easiest as possible. The charges as you know won't go away and if you get found before turning yourself in that always looks worse as turning yourself in shows your looking to turn your life around. Sure you will have to do time but maybe less this way.
