How long do you go to jail if their is a failure to appear warrant for you?

In general, arrest warrants do not carry a statute of limitations, although depending on the situation prosecution of an individual might not be possible. Once a warrant has been issued it remains valid until the person is taken into custody or voluntarily presents themselves to authorities and the issue is resolved in whatever manner required. Also, if you don't have the money to pay for the warrant, you will have to stay in jail and than wait for your court date and see what the judge says. It depends on what the warrant is for and how much the warrant is. It also depends on the judge. If it is an "outstanding warrant", you will most likely get sentenced under state law. It also depends on what state you live in. Look up your states directory of warrants and it will tell you about them.
