I have been charged with burglary in a different city. They won't give me a police report & arrest warrant unless I go in person or send a lawyer. What do I do? I can't afford a lawyer or to travel back.

    Ask for a public defender. Usually they are not appointed until your court date.You may want to show up but will likely be detained and may have to seek bail .Otherwise arrange a bail bondsman so that you will not have to be detained.

    You should hire a lawyer to go to court to recall the warrant. A lawyer can do this without you present, so it is less risky for you.

    Well if you do not go back or get a lawyer to deal with this then you will end up getting arrested on a warrant and they will take you back.
