I am a U.S. citizen with no problems. Never had any.I am a 40 ish professional business man and I met a girl 2 months ago. We are dating. Im flying to Japan in 12 days on a business trip and would like to take her. She told me she has a bench warrant outstanding for "fail to appear"and "theft by deception" something over an ex boyfriend.
Here is my question/concern..
If she takes her passport to the airport to get on the plane will this come up? If so can she be arrested at the airport for this?
Wouuld she be arrested while attempting to leave (vacation, not running, we have return tickets) or would it be more of a problem coming back?
She said it is a felony warrant for "theft by deception" something her ex boyfriend accused her of. I dont need the hassle and I dont want a girl like this im my life if its going to be problematic. I told her I would pay for an attorney to handle it but since the trip is coming up, I simply cannot accomadate her until after I/we return.
I am not asking for adive to 'evade" or help her "run away". I beleive you should do the right thing and handle your business. However time is of the essence. Her passport just came in yesterday, this is when she decided to "come clean" and tell me.
Please advise if she can fly with me or not and any info you can tell me.
NOTE: I have been looking over your posts and replys with similiar bench warrant issues. I do not know if the warrant is extraditable, I do not know the radius of it, nor do I or she knowif its in the "national database" (how would i find this out anyway?, I looked on line for ncis but you cant search it to get information on warrants.)
She does not know the county or state as they lived in several diffrent places. (shes a big help I know). Heres the reality. I would like to take her to Japan. When we return I will step up and try to help and contact an attorney. I cannot postpone my trip. pLEASE DO NOT ANSWER WITH VAUGE RESPONSES LIKE "MABYE THELL FIND OUT". tHIS IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH FROM PROFESSIONAL PEOPLE.
Please advise me what the procedures are at the airport if she already has a ticket and she just got her renewal passport yesterday. I cannot have my trip interrupted so i need to be prepared. I know the simple answer here is leave her here and go and come back, but in Japanese business culture it is very important to show marriage/commitment (dont ask me why, i dont know. I dont like removing my shoes either but when in rome...)
