It depends on which judge your case is in front of. Some judges will recall the warrants if you retain a private attorney. The judge may be lenient if there is corroboration that you reside out of state. There is of course a possibility that the judge require your presence, depending on the facts of each case.
The fact that your cases are both misdemeanors works in your favor. However, three years have elapsed, so that will be a factor in both consequences as well as whether you are required to be present or not.
The sooner you take care of these matters, the better of course your chances will be of avoiding jail and obtaining a favorable result. Consult with a private attorney as soon as possible to discuss the specifics of your cases. Good luck.
