In 2007 a warrant was placed on me for residential burglary, incarcerated in Wyoming I filed for extradition they dropped the detainer and said they would only extradite within 150 miles and kept the arrest warrant active. My license is suspended and I need to return there to appear on a misdemeanor so I'm wondering if they can carry this warrant for so long or if there's a way to handle my failure to appear without getting arrested on the felony in another county
Simply have your lawyer file a motion to recall the warrant
I will re-route this from "spinal cord injury" to criminal defense, the correct category.
The above statement should not be construed as legal advice, does not create an attorney-client relationship, and is provided purely for informational purposes. You are advised to seek legal advice from an attorney and NOT AN UNLICENSED PARALEGAL SERVICE for any legal questions you have.
It's possible an attorney could get the warrant recalled without you coming here to get it served, but unfortunately you won't know if the court will allow it until after you've hired the lawyer to try. Some people don't like paying for a lawyer when the outcome isn't guaranteed, but that just simply isn't possible in our line of work.
