    Answered . Unless you've left a lot of the steps out of this, I don't think you need to worry about an expunction just yet. It sounds like you're saying that you've got a warrant out in you at the moment, and if that's the case, you need to find a good criminal defense attorney who can help you with your case and make arrangements for you to turn yourself in and make bond. An expunction would only be a possibility if down the road your case ended up getting dismissed or you went to trial and got acquitted.

    Answered . Expunction isn't an option until a case is either dismissed or acquitted at trial. What you need right now is a defense attorney to try to reach the first goal.

    Answered . If you have a warrant for your marijuana case you need to take care of that first. Many prosecutors will file a separate charge of failure to appear. You need to hire an attorney to help resolve your charges.

    Answered . I agree with Ms. Fooley. It sounds like you are still actively involved with the court process. If that is the case then finish the process and worry about the charge being expunged later.
