My question involves an arrest warrant from the State of: West Virginia
About 6 months ago I received a moving violation for following too close in West Virginia. I decided to appear instead of paying (stupid in hindsight) because I was actually getting ready to pass someone in front of me who was going 35 in a 55.
I missed the court date by mistake and then I never did anything about it! Today I received a letter stating they have a warrant for my arrest and I need to contact them as soon as possible.
My question is: What are the possible consequences here for the failure to appear + the original violation..What is the best thing to do? Do I have to appear and/or should I get a local attorney and how much could this cost me?
