The limitations period is usually "tolled" or stopped while the warrant is outstanding so the passage of time won't lead to the dismissal of charges if you haven't yet been arrested on the warrant. The existence of a warrant usually means, however, that a charge has been filed and the county attorney wants you to appear before a magistrate to explain the charges. You may want to consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney in the area who may be able to arrange for your voluntary appearance and recall the warrant.
