I went to the court and infomed them that the car was no longer in my possesion and paid the fee. (dont remember how much) 13 years later I was turned down for an apartment because of a bench warrent for failure to appear during a background check. I see the judge tomorrow. What do you think will happen? Once this is cleared up how long will it take to remove this from my record so that I can show the management company it is cleared and they can rent me the apartment.
