    warrant for check fraud

    What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? NC

    I used to live in NC. I wrote a check for $190.00 when I lived there. I came to Indiana to visit. I still have a bank account there and fully intended on returning, but I had a family event happen in Indiana. I am still in Indiana and want to return to NC when my family situation is resolved. This all happened in September. I had my mail transfered with the post office. I did not receive anything while in Indiana stating that I had a court date. With everything going on, I forgot about the check. My old roommate in NC informed me about a warrant for writing this check. She said the police came to her house. This is the first time I have ever been in trouble with the law.

    Doesn't the court have to serve me with papers that I sign for in order to have a court date? The police said I had missed a court date. I would not have skipped a court date on purpose.

    Further more I do have money to cover the check. Can the business drop the charges if I pay?

    Am I going to have to return to NC and turn myself in?

    I am also talking to a recruiter for the Army. Do you think he could help?

    Thank you for your input!What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)?

    No.

    That will be up to the DA now that you have been charged.

    Am I going to have to return to NC and turn myself in?
    That would be the best course of action.

    I am also talking to a recruiter for the Army. Do you think he could help?
    Is he an attorney? If not, he can do nothing for you.
    If you feel my answer is rude, mean, snarky or in anyway not to your liking, I did my job. You don't need to tell me.

    No private messages, I do not reply to them.
