An FTA means you failed to appear for court somewhere in Shelby County. You may turn yourself in and you would likely be granted bond and be released with a new court date. If not granted bond you will be held in jail until the date this matter is set for trial or disposition in court. An attorney may be able to find out what the charge is all about and it may be resolved in abstentia if the charge is a relative minor charge or the warrant may be recalled and set for disposition.
