A District Attorney is law enforcement. You should never speak to a prosecutor without an attorney present. Do you really want to risk admitting to a crime yourself and being charged as a result?

You will have to hire an attorney to represent your boyfriend. Once the police have been called it is out of your hands. The prosecutor will pursue the charges even if you want to drop them. It will take you cooperating with your boyfriends attorney to obtain a dismissal of the charges.

Gary Johnston Dean's answer
Yes, as are all felonies. Your best bet would be to voluntarily return to Oklahoma. You should have an attorney to represent you when you surrender. The Warrant will then be recalled. It really beats all of the inconvenience and cost associated with arrest where you now live, and perhaps days in custody until you are transported back to Oklahoma. Good luck.
