You waited way too long before asking this question. Yes, you will most likely be held beyond your three day sentence. If the other county had done what they are supposed to do and put your warrant out to the statewide computers, and if your current county does what they are supposed to do and check you for warrants, then you will be held for up to ten additional days while extradition is discussed. You can hope that one or the other county makes a mistake, but in the future you should plan things better. No, I don't think there is anything you can do (by yourself) today. If you fail to remand another warrant will be issued, and you would be arrested when you appeared on the other case and held for extradition in THAT county. You may have hope if three things are true: 1. The warrant for failure to appear is on a misdemeanor case, and 2. You can hire a lawyer to appear for you in that county, and 3. That county allows walk-ins on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Only a local attorney could answer those questions, and cobsider
The warrant will inevitably put a hold on you. You can post bond on the case you have a warrant for to avoid this happening. Hope that's helpful
Yes, it probably will effect a hold and possibly, you will be transferred to the other county to see a judge. There really is not too much you can do except have an attorney appear for you in the other county, if the case is a misdemeanor, and try to lift the warrant. This may or may not work, depending upon whether the jail notices the warrant from out - of - county. Good luck.
You can post bail on the warrant, but it will only buy you temporary freedom, since you'll have to deal with the warrant case eventually. If you're going to do that, if suggest finding a way to post the entire bail amount so every penny is returned at the end of the case and so you're not paying a hefty price for a temporary solution.
Are you a gambling person? You can just go in on the three day sentence and hope one of two things happens: they don't catch the warrant or they cite & release you on the warrant with a date to appear in the other county.
Or... You go in, they catch the warrant and the other county won't pick you up.
Or... You go in, they catch the warrant and you're held for several additional days until you get transferred to the other county.
Too bad you didn't assess this before the holiday day that you're scheduled to turn yourself in. You could have worked this out much differently.
The above answer is for general information only and is based on the information you posted. Every case is fact dependent, so to get a thorough analysis of your situation, you will need to consult face to face with an attorney licensed to practice in the jurisdiction where the incident took place. Do not conclusively rely on any information posted online when deciding what to do about your case.
The best you can do is contact some attorneys directly and see if they can appear on your behalf in the court with the warrant. If you can get the warrant recalled, you won't have a hold when you get released from the current case you're being sentenced on. contact an attorney in or near the county with the warrant ASAP.
