Do bench warrants cross state lines?

I was convicted of trespassing and don't want to pay the 269 dollar fine. If I leave the state (SC) will that bench warrant cross state lines? Does it exist forever?

In my state, trespassing is a misdemeanor. In all states, misdemeanor warrants can not be extradited over state lines, only felonies can. So if you leave South Carolina and get pulled over in another state and your driver's license get's checked, the warrant will show up but as long as it's a misdemeanor you can't be arrested and shipped back to South Carolina. However, warrant's never go away until the fine is paid or your arrested. So if you ever go back to South Carolina and get pulled over, a cop recognizes you or you have some type of law enforcement interaction, you will go to jail. Here's the catch 22. Some misdemeanor warrants say they will extradite within 100 miles of the issuing jurisdiction. So if you are arrested in another state within that 100 miles you could be arrested and transported to jail. However you will end up having to sign an extradition waiver saying you agree to be transported back. If you don't the jurisdiction that issued the warrant could apply for a Governor's warrant and have you extradited anyways. It's not really worth having all that hang over your head. Just get it taken care of so you will never have to worry about that.
