Hire an attorney to represent you now. I think that crime is not expungeable. You need it dismissed. Do not get in any more trouble and bring enough cash to pay everything off at Court the first hearing.

You are under many mistaken assumptions. Hire a competent attorney now. Usually
Warrants issue after an arrest, and if not disposed of at General Sessions, result in an Indictment. If you do not show up to Court, a Capias (for your body) issues. Your lawyer can give you the Indictment...Read more »
No you do not unless you are trying to enter a restricted facility. But you need to be respectful to the LEO. Politely inform him that you are not talking to him about anything. If he arrests you or gives you a Citation, then cooperate without talking to him.
A Tennessee attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. It would be a firm that handles personal injury, and possibly med mal if the incident was related to the patient's care. It's difficult to say with exactness, based on this brief description. Good luck
The daughter later decides to not prosecute the defendant (her mother), but once she gets to the court to waive prosecution she is informed that the State has picked up the charge for no other reason but cruel and unusual punishment.
If this legal in general sessions court of Tennessee?

I think I might have outstanding warrants for my arrest but could also be paranoid. I don't have a criminal record and have never been arrested. I don't notice suspicious activity I see cops all the time and they don't notice me. I just want to know if there is a way to find out for sure
Usually the Sheriff will not tell you there are outstanding warrants until they are executed upon your body. Sometimes a good lawyer can represent you and find out about them when he turns you in at Court, with a bailsbondsman waiting around.
I was in the shower and my husband was asleep when police arrived. They said they got a call for a welfare check. They noticed I had marks on my neck( spotty from shower).

Tennessee is a Comparative Negligence State. So if the Court finds you over 50 % negligent, then some damage award will be adjudged against you. It could go the other way, but you are talking about litigating with the Federal Government.
The affidavit was sworn to a different individual and the police officer used white out to change it after its issuance and execution to reflect my name.. The affidavit only contains a conclusory statement without presenting any facts.. The search warrant does not particularly describe the person... Read more »
