Question: I now live out of state and I have a failure to comply warrent out for failure to pay my fines and my question is if I am outside of Mohave county and outside of the state can I be extradited for this misdemeanor warrant if I get my record run by the police out of state.

Answer: More than likely no. The warrant will show up on a records check because warrants are entered to the national system called National Criminal Information Center (NCIC). If it is financially feasible for the extradition, then you may be extradited to Mohave county to face the charges. Most (but not all) misdemeanor warrants are only extraditable within the county of the offense. You may contact Mohave County and try to either set up a payment plan for the fines, or arrange for a new court date.
