A court may deny your motion to quash warrant. The more serious your charges are, the court may view that you are less likely to re-appear in court and deny your motion. In that case, you need to make arrangement to turn yourself in. Once you turn yourself in, you will appear before a District Court Commissioner who will determine bail. Your attorney will have opportunity to argue your release conditions or bail. It gets harder to ask for release if you are picked up by the police. So, it is important to act promptly as waiting to get arrested randomly is a bad idea. The longer you wait, the greater the case for skepticism regarding your seriousness.
