    Default Out-Of-State Warrant and Flying

    I have a warrant in Florida for failure to appear on a felony case. Florida has never opted to extradite me from Indiana. I wish to fly to Texas. I have been told that Florida will not extradite me unless I am within four houndred miles. I still do not want to be detained at an airport just to find out nothing is going to happen.
    Is there anything to be concerned about?
    thank you,
    Ben

    It's unlikely that anything will happen, but the only way to be certain is to resolve the warrant.

    Thank you for the advice. I currently am resolving IN problems and I want to resolve the FL problems after completing the IN ones.

    I have heard that it is not uncommon for FL to make a stipulation that you never return to FL, rather than doing jail time, or probation. Does this have any truth to it?

    Thank you,

    I forgot to mention, it's a drug charge (not dealing). Does Florida have a statue of limitations for this type of felony? I understand the best bet is to resolve it, but it has been five years already.
    Thank you,

    The statute of limitations stops running when you are charged. A warrant was issued, so you have been charged.

    Okay, thank you for the information. I have been wondering for years about that one!
    How about the Florida question concerning banning people from the State rather than probation/jail time if a person's residence is out of state.

    Thanks for all the help!!!

    hahaha, yeah I guess it does sound a little unrealistic. But, how does a state resolve issues with out of state people they aren't even willing to extradite. I'm willing to pay them anything they want, and serve probation time in my home state, but I can't bring myself to drive 2500 miles just to get locked up.

    If they won't pick you up and you don't go back to take care of the charges, the warrant remains outstanding.
