Question: Why is a warrant being issued for a case I failed to pay the fines completely for 7 years after it happened

Answer: The court may have recently reviewed your case and determined you failed to pay the fines and subsequently issued a warrant. It is also possible a warrant was issued some time ago and you only recently became aware. I would recommend scheduling a time to see the judge and ask for the warrant to be quashed and set up a payment plan for the fines, if you actually have not already paid them. Otherwise the warrant will remain active and you may be arrested. Also, if you show up on your own instead of being brought in by the police, the judge will likely be more willing to work with you on payments and quash the warrant.
