What happens when you leave the Country and have a Warrant for an Open Marijuana Possession case? ~ Chosen as "Best Answer" by Asker on AVVO ~ Call Michael A. Haber, Esq. @ 1-888-SHARK-8-1

Q:     What's going to happen with my marijuana possession case?  In summer of 2014 I was arrested in Jersey city and charged with possession of marijuana, one small bag, something like 1 gr. I had to left country before trial because I was on temporary visa, so now I have open case and arrest warrant in New Jersey. I contacted court few times and they told me to hire a lawyer, but I am student from eastern Europe and I still didn't save enough money to hire one. I want to know what is going to happen with my case, bail, if I don't hire a lawyer soon?

Answered Nothing ids going to happen to your case.

You have a warrant and your case will be held in abeyance until the warrant is either quashed or served.

Not withstanding Governor Christie's utterly moronic hard-line stance on marijuana laws and enforcement you will almost certainly not be the subject of either an Interpol warrant or international extradition, but if you try to enter the US then you will almost certainly be detained.

I do not usually agree with Clerk's giving legal advise but in this case I make an exception... (" I contacted court few times and they told me to hire a lawyer..."). I not only agree but I also urge you to find a way to do so. You do not need a warrant, even for a misdemeanor, hanging over your head.

The bottom line with warrants is that they suck (well that and that oftentimes they end up in untimely and inconvenient incarceration). When it comes to the subject of warrants, anyone anywhere who has knowledge of the existence of the warrant has 2 choices: Either they can deal with it proactively, in an offensive manner or they can live day to day, waiting until it is ultimately served, and then play catch-up (defense).

In this light warrants can be likened to cancer. If it exists (whether it is a warrant or cancer) then you have a problem. You can either choose to deal with the problem and hope for the best or you can wait for the problem to deal with you in its own natural fashion. In the former event it may or may not work out favorably for you, but, in the case of a warrant, at least the State and the Judge will have to acknowledge that you voluntarily chose to bring the matter to them (which is an undeniable fact that even an inexperienced lawyer should be able to use your advantage during the pendency of your case). In the later event, however, just as with cancer, the longer that you choose to wait (whether in denial, self-pity or simply because you are lost in hope, desperation and prayer that it'll heal itself / go away) then more time that it has to metasticize and destroy you from within.

You may well have defenses to your charges, I don't know. What I do know is that you should discuss the matter with an experienced Jersey City, NJ area criminal defense lawyer. Further, I am certain that, right, wrong or indifferent that the warrant is a veritable cancer which will almost surely prejudice you, whether with the Court, the State or both, sometime down the legal pike.

I hope that I have been helpful in answering your question.
