A SOC warrant is a Sheriff's Order of Commitment, which means you owe the sheriff's department some jail time because you failed to do work project. Once a SOC warrant is issued, there is nothing the court can do. You have to turn yourself into the sheriff's department and finish whatever time you owe.

Most judges won't set aside/vacate/remove a warrant like that until your surrender. An attorney might be able to arrange an in-court surrender so that you can make your case to the judge without waiting in jail for a hearing date.
