Kelly & Soto Law | Michael Kelly
First you need to contact a criminal defense attorney. The attorney will contact the court or courts where you have outstanding warrants. The clerk of the court will inform the attorney about the type of warrant you have and if there are upcoming court dates. The attorney can then try and argue to the judge that your warrant should be removed. Because you are aware of the warrants, it's best to resolve this type of matter as soon as possible. Generally speaking, courts like to see defendants take some initiative.

Retain a good criminal lawyer to cut a plea deal with the prosecutor and the judge before he surrenders you so you dont have to sit in jail until the judge decides what will happen to you. You might still get a jail term, but that cannot be avoided in all cases. At least you have a chance at an alternate sentence like a program, fine, community service, or probation.

Hammerschmidt Broughton Law | Mark A. Broughton
You need to go to the court that issued the warrant and place yourself on calendar to recall the warrant. You don't say what the warrant is for, but if it's for something relatively minor, the judge will likely recall the warrant and release you OR own recognizance, or impose an appropriate bail. A lawyer can help you do this. The other way, of course, is to wait until you are stopped someday for, say, speeding or a tail light out, and have the officer take you to jail on the warrant. The first way is better.

You will have to turn yourself into the court. I would advise hiring a lawyer to file a motion to quash and recall the warrants. You better have a really good reason for not appearing on these warrants before. Regardless, the court may hold you until you are able to post bond on the warrants, which hopefully will be reduced because you turned yourself in, or quash them altogether, in which case you will be set free.

You will probably have to go to jail, at least initially, to turn yourself in and get the ball rolling unless they just let you do a walk-through arraignment without having to turn yourself in. But that's the normal course of actions on such things. You may be sentenced to jail depending on what the warrants are for, how long they have been issued, and other factors. Consult with an experienced criminal attorney in your area for a more specific answer and assistance.

The nature of the charges and your previous criminal history play a large part in the outcome here, but the best option that you have is surrendering yourself to the court with a good private attorney before you are picked up on the warrant.
