Warrants do not expire so it won't just fall off of your criminal history record; it will remain active until you go back to the court where it was issued and appear before a judge. You will need to handle both the the warrant and also the underlying charge. At this point you should consult directly with a local criminal law attorney for further advice. Until you do, the warrant will show up in an employment backgroud check or if you are stopped for simply a speeding ticket, etc.
