Re: Florida Statute of Limitation(S)
This was a parole violation? And not simply a warrant for his arrest for DUI?
If so, then that could change things. First off, many warrants are never entered into NCIC. They are entered into NCIC if extradition from elsewhere is desired. If there is no extradition, then no entry into NCIC need occur.
Second, a parole violation would not be a local warrant on the county website - it would be issued by the state. Whether it is issued by the FL DOC or some other entity, I am not sure as I am not familiar with how FL is set up for this. You might want to check their absconder information: http://www.dc.state.fl.us/Absconder/
A question ... was he arrested for the DUI and booked into jail? If so, I would be shocked if there was no warrant for his arrest, or if he faced no potential arrest for his actions.
If he never finished off his parole, he's still technically a fugitive. It might be that FL does not issue warrants for all such offenders, but if they are run through NCIC it comes back with a hit on a supervised release file and may have an indication that he is a fugitive. That may be how they address absconders. Different states operate in different ways.
