My question involves an arrest warrant from the State of: New York State
I had a warrant issued for my arrest on check fraud fifteen years ago and I am applying for a new job and they have requested a thorough background check. I was wondering whether this might prevent me from getting the job and if this search may re-activate the dormant warrant. Does an old warrant ever expire? I was arrested for fare evasion 5 years ago and the warrant was not mentioned to me. I'd appreciate any advice you could provide. I am concerned about this.
