Re: bench warrant statue of limitation

My answer is no. If a warrant is out there, it can still be enforced and the person against whom it was issued should take immediate action by hiring a lawyer and getting into court as soon as possible. If law enforcement brings them in, they may have to wait quite a while to get into court and sometimes a person can get lost in the system for several weeks before law enforcement running a facility realizes what a person is being detained for. Will be happy to discuss this further and in more detail.
