There is no doubt you will be charged if you do nothing to protect yourself. An experienced criminal defense lawyer might be able to intervene and negotiate with the prosecutor prior to a warrant being issued for your arrest. Additionally, there are things you can do right now that can contribute to a favorable plea bargain (one that may not go on your record) and help motive any sentence that may be imposed. Avvo is an excellent place to find a 10.0 rated lawyer and many of us offer a free consultation.See question
