Good defense lawyers get clients out of doing max jail sentences all the time, even when judges tell a defendant that such a sentence is a foregone conclusion. The judge in Rochester are tough but even the toughest judges can be persuaded. As for the warrant, it really should not be much of an issue. Hire a lawyer now so he or she can connect with the court and schedule a time for you to be arraigned. Between turning yourself in and retaining counsel, the court will probably not make such a big deal about the warrant.

These delays are becoming more common as the State Police crime lab deals with more and more blood and DNA evidence. I've seen delays very in time quite a bit, from a month to as many as 14 months. The important thing for you now is to hire a lawyer experienced in defending these cases. A lawyer can represent you right now and do various things to protect you from the impending charges and put you in a better position to defend the charges, if and when they are forthcoming. Additionally, a lawyer can stay in contact with law enforcement so that you have an opportunity to surrender voluntarily on a warrant rather than being arrested on an outstanding warrant.

I was forced to go to the hospital and they took my blood. The officer put the vials in a evidence bag and waved it in the air and told me i am in-arrested. He said I would get a ticket in the mail. Nothing has come, my accident was on 11/30/16. H...
When the blood test results come back to the detective, he will either write you a ticket or submit a warrant request to the prosecutor. Either way, a retained attorney can help run interference and do damage control. At a minimum, an attorney can make arrangements for you to self-surrender so that you are not picked up on the warrant when it is issued. Your concern about getting arrested if you are pulled over is valid and one of many reasons it is in your best interest to hire a lawyer immediately.

If you hire a good lawyer and go into court to be arraigned on the bench warrant, the judge may be willing to reinstate your bond and give you another chance. This happens all the time and most judges don't get too bent out of shape as long as there is not a history of bond violations.See question

A fraud conviction, even a retail fraud, can have serious implications for your life, future employment and educational opportunities. I'm certain talking to your parents would be incredibly difficult but I encourage you to reconsider this decision. If you ever needed help, and that is what parents are for, this is the time. Unless you have the fund to hire a private lawyer on your own, you are probably going to need their help. You may be entitled to a court appointed lawyer but a retained attorney would be able to spend the most time with you and on your case to ensure you are protected.See question
