What is the name of your state? AZ
After commiting Assault 2, (a felony commited in 2002) in the state of WA, King County (a strike charge in WA) I was sentenced to 6 mo. in jail with one year of probation (a 13 year no contact order on the victim), there were 2,600.00 or so in fines as well. I pled guilty to all charges, served my time and began probation for a month, followed all of the rules, etc. But, because I was released into a home in which illegal activities took place I was forced to move back home to South Dakota (my original location.) When I got off of my flight my probation officer called me at my home in SD and stated that I did not sign the necessary paperwork to leave the county, and that she wanted me to return to finish it, but it was also likely I was going to get snagged with a violation charge. She then stated she would try to obtain a warrant for me if I did not.
Four years after that, I have moved to Arizona without once answering my probation officer's request. There has been no incident since, which leaves me doubting whether or not there even is a warrant. So, to be on the safe side, I am going to assume that I do -- for probation violation.
Now, I've been living and working here in Arizona for the AOL Time-Warner Co. as a Customer Service represenative and have commited no other crimes. The Assault 2 is the only charge on my record and is my first and only offense.
My ultimate question is this: Should I be stopped or checked by a police officer, and he or she runs my ID, will I be held accountable for a warrant from another state here in Arizona? And, if so, what is my risk of being extradited? How do police officers perform warrant checks/confirmations in Arizona? Would it show up on an Arizona State ID?
And finally, is there a time limmit which applies to warrants in WA for probation violation? I want to get it taken care of and am willing to have probation transfered to me here in AZ. But I do not want to risk having a bunch of new charges to deal with at the same time.
Should I be worried about something right now that I missed?
