If you think this will go away you are mistaken. At some point it may come back to bite you when you least expect it. The warrant could possibly be recalled once it sits in the file after a number of years or it could last for many years. If you have to answer any questions regarding prior arrests are you going to lie about it?

Because it's not in NCIC doesn't mean it won't come up running your name/DOB in Lexus/Nexus (or other, better databases like IRB that I use) or using the court database in whatever jurisdiction you used to live in.

But obviously you just want to ignore it and sweep it under the rug rather than take responsibility for your actions. I'm still reasonably sure that a legit background will pull up your record. It's your life so you get to roll the dice.

You can run background checks with just name and birthday. We run them through the FBI and each state the person has lived in. I don't know what CA law is, but when we check people around here, warrants do come up.

How about this.
When you lie on your employment application about your criminal background you will be fired when the truth comes out. So don't plan on a long career anywhere.
Those failure to appear charges are a B****. When they do finally catch you, and they will.
Normally they will cut you loose for a minor misdemeanor charge.
But not on a failure to appear charge.
They will hang on to you and stick you on a caged bus full of convicts for three days of Hell as they ship you back to CA.
You should hire a lawyer in CA and have this handled.
Get on the phone, call a lawyer in the city where your warrant is from.
Might cost you a few grand, but it will be worth it.
You cant move forward in life being a Fugitive from Justice.
And You are a Fugitive from Justice.

As much as the OP needs to take care of this the part in bold is not true. No way CA will extradite on a misdemeanor fail to appear. No state will. Otherwise it will come back to bite him in other ways.

It seems to me that the OP might also want to consider whether his past actions mean he is not bondable and whether he plans to lie about that (as well as prior arrests) on his applications.

The Statue of Limitations for petty theft is only like 2 years. The OP can just avoid going back to CA for two years and then at that point he/she can not be prosecuted. Sure, this may show up on a background check, but so what. If you just want to avoid jail and have no intent of getting a U.S. Government Security Clearance, then you made the right move. Catch a petty charge, flee the state, wait for the statue to expire, and then you can return to that state and you can't be prosecuted. Every good criminal should have some wits and know how to beat the system. It may show up in a background check, but you avoid jail. Don't listen to these other fools in this thread trying to tell you to "do the right thing" and go back and get busted. You only live once. Say fu ck the law and live your life. Good job OP!

Aren't you the same person who was just extolling the virtues and importance of Christian values in another thread, regarding a particular social issue with which you happen to disagree? But when it comes to someone stealing and avoiding the consequences of their actions, you say "fu.ck the law." Seems like there would be some cognitive dissonance between supporting Christian values while having a fu.ck the law mentality, unless you just conveniently pick and choose which values you want to uphold.

Man I hope you are not an attorney as you're advice sucks. The petty theft charge may have a limitation but I'll wager the fail to appear does not. In Va we can leave these active forever. Sure, the original charge may disappear but you can still go to jail for the bench warrant years down the road.
