What is the name of your state? Georgia
The matter is in Dekalb County.
I have an apartment in Ga, but was working out of town for the last 6 months. I had a check book stolen, and my account was closed. I didn't properly account for one check and of course it bounced but I wasn't aware of it at the time. Apparently a bench warrant was filed for my arrest, but I happened to find out about the check and payed the check back to the company. I had a recent background check that turned up the warrant, and I called and they said that I would have to be booked at the Sherrif's office and bailed out. I'm just graduated from law school, so I'm not ignorant to the law but I have no idea how to get out of this with out having to go to jail.
I'm wondering if anyone has seen this issue and knows how to proceed in settling the warrant, without having to be booked. Like I said, I paid the debt which was only for $125 (so a small claims misdemeanor offense) but I'm sure that there has to be a way to just go to a judge and pay the court costs. Any advice would be helpful.
