The first step is confirming the existence of the warrant. You can search for the warrant in three places:

Ideally, you should hire an attorney as soon as you find out that a criminal investigation has begun. Your attorney can provide favorable or exculpatory evidence to the investigating officer that might convince the officer not to obtain the warrant in the first place.
