Q: If I just found out, I have a warrant can I go to the courthouse during typical arraignment times, and ask for summons
A former employee/business partner has accuse me of identity theft, even though mine, and he was also stolen and compromised at the same time but when the officer called me from her Facebook page, I refuse to go in without an attorney present, because it’s my business, and I didn’t want to take any chance of something being taken the wrong way were used against me that’s what it’s designed for Officer then called and emailed me multiple times but when I reached out to an attorney who contacted him but officer would not respond to the attorney. I found out that I have a warrant for this matter but I have also had my identity stolen and every bit of my bank account was cleaned out so I can’t afford the bond that’s $2500. I’m a single parent, a business owner, and I have kidney in Health diseases as well as MS. I can’t take the chance of being pulled over something with my children and going to jail with no money in my account I would like to just go today during court and ask for summons
A: No. If it is an arrest warrant, you can’t just appear and have it set aside yourself. You need to hire an attorney to attempt to have your Attorney argue for the Judge to set aside or convert the warrant.
