I saw a coworker fired after a year when it was discovered he never completed his degree. As it turns out, he, like you, was an idiot who only had 1 class left to take but just never bothered. Didnt matter that he'd been a good employee up till that point, he lied on his app and was immediately terminated.

So ya, good luck....

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.
Yeah that's pretty blatant. If he truly cared about Christian values, he'd know submitting to ruling authorities and obeying the law is actually commanded.

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!

Wow, you're really commendable!

So I did a little research and apparently one of the previous posts were right. Bench warrants often don't expire or expire only after a very long time (like decades), as this various by the crime and the state. The Statue of Limitations (SOL) clock doesn't even start yet if you have a warrant out. Oh well. But usually for petty misdemeanors law enforcement won't try to pursue you in another state. So I would still say just flee the state and never return. This works if you have a warrant in some nowhere state like Wyoming which you'll probably never care to return to anyway.

OKAY EVERYONE... A warrant for petty theft in CA is not a bookable warrant so I was informed by the SD County Records and Warrants that I would not be arrested. Also, I HAVE NEVER LIED on any employment application! The job application asks if you have ever been CONVICTED of a misdemeanor or felony, and I have NOT.

FUGITIVE FROM THE LAW? Calm the **** down people. I didn't rape or kill anyone. It was a ****ing shirt. i forgot my CC, and I was desperate. Stupid mistake, we all have made one at some point. READ!!! I do intend of taking care of it and being responsible but I can't now because I live in Virginia and my warrant is in CA. When I can afford to go back, I will. Chill out, i just needed help with information and thanks but some of you need to relax. I'm the one with the warrant, just needed advice.

I'm glad to hear that you won't get hauled off after a traffic stop for this, and that you do plan to take care of it. If your prospective employer does a thorough background this will come up. You may want to re-think the "petty theft is no big deal" perspective as future employers probably don't want to hear that from you as a response to questions about it. Especially if they think some of their stuff will be walking out the door if they hire you!

It's STATUTE of limitations, not STATUE. You and the posters who keep writing "loose" instead of "lose", etc. are making me crazy! Stop it, this makes me laugh every time and I can't take any of your posts seriously.

The folks on this forum are generally helpful and will give you opinions. However, you have to understand that most folks here are also generally law-abiding citizens, so having an outstanding warrant in another state is going to draw comments. It may be over something as petty as stealing a shirt, but the fact is, folks are going to fixate on the fact that you decided to skip out on your court date. You have to expect it when you bring that into the conversation.

No one here is rooting against you as far as getting employed, they're cautioning you to not be surprised if that restricts your employment opportunities. And being generally law-abiding, they're also counseling you to take care of it. Well, everyone except Big Toe, that is; follow Big Toe's advice at your own risk.

Thank you Forehead. Yeah I get it but maybe these people who are mad about me not going to court should focus more on "real criminals". I just wanted advice, but anyway... this warrant is not on NCIC, and the FBI informed me it would only find something when the agency the crime was done with sends it through NCIC since that is how they find records.

A "real criminal" is a person who has broken a real law. You've admitted that you stole a shirt and skipped your court date in a place where there are real laws prohibiting both; ergo, you're a real criminal. I wish you no ill will, but really, if you're going to own the actions, then you have to be willing to own the label as well.
