Last year in 2016 I went out of town on Christmas I went out of town to another state for family get-together, and got pulled over and charged with simple possession for having two pills in my purse that were not prescribed to me. I missed the court date so now I have a warrant for my arrest in that county will my lawyer see that I have that warrant when I go in for my monthly check in. I'm hoping that she will not see it being that I get off of probation at the beginning of next month. Also, if she does see it will I be taken to jail immediately from my probation officers office? I hate that this happened of course and I wish it wasn't happening I'm pregnant and I'm so worried, I know I did the crime so I have to pay the price of it. It's worrying me so much it makes me sick to my stomach. I called the wrong County and they told me they did not see my name anywhere in the system. So I figured that may be the charge got lost somewhere during the process. I was calling the wrong countyThe month that I was supposed to go to court which was March 9th I called 2 days actually in and they did notify me and let me know that I did have a warrant for not showing up

Providing general answers are meant to help the poster to understand some complex legal concepts and in no way creates an attorney-client relationship.
The sooner you hire an attorney where the possession charges occurred the better. Waiting and missing court dates is the worst thing you could do at this point. Call an attorney.
