Your first step is to hire a criminal defense attorney right away and listen to what the attorney has to say. The warrant on your matter will remain outstanding until it is either executed or you deal with it in court. The sooner you hire an attorney, the better.

Accused A is found guilty, is then sentenced, and now wants to appeal the conviction and sentence. As long as there are merits Accused A will be given an appeal. That sworn affidavit will likely hurt any appeal if contains a confession.
