I have a warrant issued in the amount of $10,000.00 for welfare fraud, and it is from an over-payment in food stamps back in 2010 totaling $3007.00. I am unemployed and looking for a job but the warrant is stopping me from passing a background check. I need to ask the judge to allow me restitution and or community service. If I turn myself in will they site and release me so that I can get a court date to see the judge? I'm a single mom of four, full time student graduating in May of this year. Please help!
