How can I clear a warrant for my arrest? Can I be arrested in another state for a California warrant?Posted on: May 28, 2007 at 1:57 a.m.
Clearing up an arrest or bench warrant can be done one way: appearing in front of the court that issued the warrant. As long as the warrant is in the system, the person can be arrested for it in any state, in any contact with the police or government agency, and even coming into the United States at the airport. Immediate action to clear up the warrant is the best way to approach this problem. Voluntarily coming into the court may often prevent later jail or prison time if the person is actually arrested on the warrant.

When a warrant is for conduct from many years ealier, it is possible to have the case dismissed if the prosecutors cannot locate their witnesses to prove the criminal conduct, as witnesses may have moved, or changed their names. Thus the government may have a difficult time to locate witness years after a warrant has been issued.
