i have dui in gran island ne .. its an outstanding warrent i live in atlanta...what should i do
My advice is to find a lawyer in Nebraska where the outstanding warrant is and find out what the local practice in that court is for lifting the warrant. If it is a misdemeanor DUI, it is very unlikely law enforcement in Atlanta will come looking for you and extradite on it alone. It very well could, however, lead to a suspension of your drivers license here. Keep in mind also, that with advances in computer networking, we are finding that state's databases are doing a better job of cross-referencing these types of warrants. I would hate for you to be stopped for a minor traffic violation, get arrested on this warrant, and then spend a couple of days in jail before Georgia gets word that Nebraska will not extradite on a misdemeanor. Go to AVVO or NCDD.com to start looking for lawyers near Grand Island who can help.
