Will a FTA warrant for felony drug possession show up on live scan from 4000 miles away and what is the statute of limitations for a drug possession warrant?

This would depend on whether the court or law enforcement agency holding the warrant entered it into NCIC, which contains the national wanted persons index. If they did, and your fingerprints are on file with that court or agency, then yes, a live scan of your fingerprints is going to reveal the existence of the warrant. Whether or not you are arrested immediately depends on whether the court or LE agency holding the warrant wants you badly enough to send someone to bring you back.

Arrest warrants are valid until served or recalled. There is no "statute of limitations" on a warrant.

What happened to Tim Youngblood on Dog the Bounty Hunter?

For all of you who used to watch Dog the Bounty Hunter (Da Kine Bail Bonds), Dog's associate Tim Chapman, was caught at the Ala Moana Center in the Bank of Hawaii parking lot with his clothes off in his truck performing lewd acts. When witnesses contacted Ala Moana security, the security guard asked Tim to put on his clothes and get out of his truck.

Tim put on his clothes, then started his car, hopped a curb and almost hit the security guard. Now, Tim is charged on suspicion of attempted murder for almost hitting the security guard, and indecent exposure in a public area.What I didn't know was that Tim had separated from his Samoan wife and had been living out of his truck. When police went over to his Hawaii Kai home, they were told that information. But Brook Hart, Tim and Dog's attorney, has said that this was an entire misunderstanding.

Brook had stated that Tim spilled orange juice on his pants and was looking for a private place to change his pants. And when the security guard startled him, he panicked and drove away as fast as he can. If this is true, I can somewhat understand that. I mean with the latest cancellation of Dog the Bounty Hunter reality show, and with all of them almost losing their celebrity status, Tim separation with his wife is just another bad thing that has happened to the Dog ohana.

Tim has already turned himself into police and was notified that he might be charged for only terroristic threatening instead of the other two charges. He is currently in a cell block since last night. Let's hope all this gets resolved.

UPDATE: On January 29, 2009 the terroristic threatening charges were dropped. Tim was later acquitted of the indecent exposure charges, on February 2, 2009. Although Tim was not listed in the opening credits for season 5, he can be seen in the background in some of the episodes. He officially returned to the show on the season 6 episode "Mister Mom," which aired on April 14, 2010. He stated that he had been away raising his children as a single father. I don't doubt that his legal issues were a big part of the reason as well.

What happens if the police unlawfully obtain evidence without a search warrant?

You're allowed to lock your items in a suit case or anything that you can put a lock on such as your backpack for instance. They would need a search warrant n they cannot demand you to open it. Just thought I would throw that out there.

Will you get arrested if you go to the hospital to have a baby with a felony warrant out of state?

I would not think that it is common practice for a hospital to check warrants on its patients. Legally speaking it is illegal for a hospital to have access to NCIC (the national warrant database) as this is only accessible by law enforcement agencies. Generally hospitals are not concerned with the criminal activities of its patients. Unless you show up with a gunshot or a stab wound they generally won't even bother calling the police. The hospitals primary concern is providing health care for you and your child.

Added; Above is perfectly correct, except I would add - if you are a minor unaccompanied by a parent/guardian it is likely that the the hospital will probably contact law enforcement or the youth authorities regarding you.

What is a lunacy warrant?

This MAY be a reference to a mental health commitment order, which can be issued by the court upon the showing of cause that the named individual may be an imminent threat to themselves or others due to mental illness. This empowers the authorities (not necessarily law enforcement - although it is they who usually get to carry it out) to take someone into custody for commitment to a mental hospital for observation or treatment.

Can you run from a warrant?

Sure, you can physically run from a warrant. There are some things you should consider before you try it, however. One is that the warrant isn't going away. Ever. Another thing is you seriously lessen your chances of getting out on bail if you've already tried to run from justice once. Even were bail to be set, you would have to do some tall talking to convince a bondsman to take a chance on you if they had to run you down and drag you kicking and screaming into jail. The best thing to do is arrange for your bail and turn yourself in to the police. Doing this makes it possible for you to "book through", and spend the least amount of time in jail as is possible. Maybe just an hour or two. It also looks very nice when it comes up at your trial, and makes you seem a more honest, believable person when you give your side of the story to the Court. It could even help with the Judge in deciding whether or not you should serve time or get off on probation.

How long is a court warrant valid in Arizona?

A warrant ordered by the court is in effect until the court rescinds it. Or the person is brought to trial or a hearing and the matter is resolved. It is not something that can or should be ignored, as it could also culminate into contempt of court charge(s) adding further complications for the defendant.

What does revocation of bail mean?

This generally means a person has violated the conditions of their bail/bond and the court rovokes the bail and the person is subject to immediate arrest.

Also, the bail bond company can revoke the bond, not just the court.

You have the right to be released on reasonable bail which is not meant to punish, but instead is meant to ensure your appearance in court. A bench warrant may be issued for your arrest for willful failure to appear. Bail may not be excessive. If a person was out of custody on bail and the bail was revoked that means that the criminal defendant violated conditions of the bail.

A defendant is entitled to a bail hearing. At a bail hearing, like all other adversarial judicial proceedings, evidence and argument from the prosecution and defense can be presented to the court either for or against the revocation of bail. For more info on Bail Hearings: www.occriminallaw.com If your bail is being revoked it is important that you consult with a licensed attorney to determine your legal options. In short if bail is revoked it means that the criminal defendant is sitting in jail pending the conclusion of the criminal case and would need to be acquited of the criminal charges in order to be released from custody. There may be a way to fix the revocation of bail and it is for this reason it is important to consult with an attorney.

Can you get a id card if you have a warrant for your arrest?

Unless they 'slip-up' when entering you into the state system to verify your ID, then you're out of luck. When they enter your name and DOB, you're going to show up. You should just surrender to the warrant and get it over with. It's going to catch up with you sooner or later anyway, probably when you least expect it and when you can least afford it.
