will the mistermeaner warrant follow me down here?
Unfortunately regardless of who you contact the court will generally require your appearance at some point. If you fail to appear a warrant will be issued. Typically misdemeanor warrants however did not result in a person being extradited from state to state. Meaning that if you are arrested in Tennessee and Tennessee is made aware of the Pennsylvania warrant you will not be extradited back to Pennsylvania for your criminal charge there. That being said you do need to take care of the Pennsylvania case when you're financially able to travel back to the jurisdiction.
Contacting the public defenders office in that town is a good idea.
You should call the public defender's office in that county. Just explain to them your situation. They should be able to get you a time extension for you to make it to court. If however, you fail to appear they can issue a bench warrant for your arrest.
Lawyer Michael Kotik response to question.
Call the Public Defender's Office in Easton. Their number is (610) 559-3040. I would urge you to try to figure out a way.
Will the warrant follow you, not exactly. Pennsylvania will not extradite, but you may be arrested or detained while it is checked. Also your TN license may be suspended depending on what PA does.
If you are arrested in the future it may be more difficult for you to bail out because of an open warrant.
