Re: Statute of Limitations on Drug Warrant
The warrant will exist until it is served or recalled. The odds of a warrant being recalled on its own are somewhere between slim and none ... nearer to none.
You should assume the warrant still exists and will dog you until it is recalled. It can not only prevent access to gainful employment, it can restrict credit, prevent access to government backed loans (housing, student, etc.), it can disqualify you for social security and many forms of government aid,and it can result in arrests or police contacts even if the issuing agency will not extradite.
Get it cleared up. You might even be eligible for diversion.
