A SOC warrant is a Sheriff's Order of Commitment, which means you owe the sheriff's department some jail time because you failed to do work project. Once a SOC warrant is issued, there is nothing the court can do. You have to turn yourself into the sheriff's department and finish whatever time you owe.
