Legal Question

Asked on: 6/02/12, 10:51 am

I had a vehicle that I financed and got behind on payments after losing my job. When the finanace company couldn't find the vehicle a warrant was placed out for my arrest for Security Interest. When I found out about the waranty two days later I turned the vehilce in and was told by a rep from the finance company that the warrrant would be recalled. I turned the vehicle in April 2, 2012 and was still arrested for the charge on May 31, 2012. When I spoke to the finance co they said that although I turned the vehilce in I still commited a crime and the warrant is still valid. I never knew it was a crime when I wasn't paying my car payment. I was maybe 3 mos behind if that and my intentions were to make the payment once I could. I bailed out of jail and have a court date on Aug. 3rd, 2012. Please advise!
