One key issue is whether probation is involved. If there is potential probation violation involved, the process is a little different than just a traditional show-cause hearing for failing pay fines or costs. Failing to appear at court as scheduled during a pending criminal charge may result in a bench warrant being issued for a person's arrest. Failing to comply with any order of a court may result in criminal sanctions, including jail time, additional fines and costs, or other sanctions at the discretion of the court.

If it was a mistake that you missed the court date you can appear at court with an attorney to vacate the warrant and adjourn the case and finish the community service and pay the fines if the court will allow time to do it.

Your probation is likely to be revoked. If it is a class b or higher case, you are likely to receive a jail sentence. If it is a class c, you will be found guilty. You need to find out if there is a warrant.

    If you fail to complete a condition of probation, such as community service or fine payment, the court can violate your probation and imposes any stayed jail time. Sounds like your case was scheduled for a first appearance on a probation violation. When you miss a court appearance, the judge issues a bench warrant for your arrest. My advice would be to retain counsel and then make arrangements to turn yourself in at the jail on the bench warrant as soon as possible. The lawyer will appear with you in court the next day to represent you and make arguments for your release from jail without having to post bail. The case will then be scheduled for a probation revocation hearing before the sentencing judge. You should pay the fine and complete the community service prior to the next court hearing on the probation violation.

    When you fail to comply with the terms of your probation, the court will revoke the probation. If you are in violation of probation, you can go to jail for up to the maximum of the remaining custody time on the case. If you did not appear in court when you were ordered to do so the court can issue a bench warrant and you could be arrested. Rather than wait to be picked up on a warrant, it might want to contact counsel to go with you to court and try to get you reinstated on your probation, get you extensions to complete the community service/pay the fines, or try to modify the sentence. Obviously, it is better if you have at least done some of the community service and if you can partially pay the fine. In any event, it is better to handle this sooner rather than later.

    Your attorney would be able to advise you better since he knows the facts and circumstances of your case. Most criminals are immature, uneducated, and lazy. You should have had a diary with the court date and made sure that you performed the community service to avoid a jail term. The prosecutor and judge gave you a break and sentenced you to do community service as an alternative to a jail sentence. You did not bother to do what the judge told you to do because you are not a responsible adult. You should retain a good criminal lawyer. If you do not have a few thousand dollars you should contact your public defender and tell him why you did not complete the community service . He may be able to convince the judge that you are just a kid and deserve a second chance, but some judges will not buy that and you will be sentenced to a jail term. That is why you should retain a good lawyer who will be more likely to convince the judge and prosecutor to give you a break. Life is about making good decisions. You should get a good education, find a good career that you love, and stay out of trouble in order to be successful and happy in life. Good advice is harder to take than to give and you don't change yourself overnight. My guess is that you are not on the right road and need to change your view on life dramatically and start to work toward success in your personal and business life.

    If you have a court date and do not appear the judge will usually issue a warrant for failure to appear. They usually won't come looking for your but if you get pulled over for a traffic violation the officer will run your driver's license and discover the warrant.

    By not showing up for court, you probably have been issued a Bench Warrant for your arrest. I'd advise you contact the judge or prosecutor and explain that you missed the court date and ask for a new date. They'll probably want you to turn yourself in first so wait until it's the day before the hearing. Now, because you haven't done your community service, the court can find you in contempt and impose the underlying sentence. You should contact your original attorney or seek to hire one before turning yourself in. You are entitled to an attorney to help you argue that your non-compliance with the prior conditions should not result in jail or if so, that you are a good candidate for work release.

    Community Service is an alternative to jail. If you didn't do it, you will probably be arrested. Fines can be worked off at a certain amount per day of jail so you may take care of the fines the same way. Apart from jail, I would suggest that you get your money together and pay the fines pronto. You also need to contact your court and find out when you can get in front of a judge to quash your warrant from today. Be absolutely ready to be booked into jail by the judge. That means, no weed or any other drug should be on you. Don't take anything that could be used as a weapon into court. Failure to do a complete pat down and shake down may wind you in bigger trouble.

    The question depends on what type of case you are talking about. In California, if you fail to appear in court for a traffic citation, then the court will add a count for failing to appear which will result in additional fines and a hold on your license until you get an abstract from the court. If this is a criminal case (misdemeanor or felony), then a failure to appear will result in a warrant for your arrest, which may or may not have a NO bail hold.

If you can't afford to do that, call the court and ask for a hearing, and, if the court won't set a hearing because of a pending warrant, you should probably turn yourself into the police. They will probably release you within a day and give you a new court date. In the event that you have time between now and a court date, do everything possible to finish your community service and come up with money to pay fines.

    DeVito & Visconti, PA | John E DeVito
    Failing to appear for a court date will result in a warrant for your arrest. If the warrant issued yesterday and you appear in court within the next day, the court may waive the usual $50 fee associated with removing a default warrant. The probation department and the court in all likelihood will give you additional time to pay fines that you have not paid. They may also give you additional time to finish your community service. If you have completely ignored the court and have paid no fines and have performed no community service you could be facing a more serious sanctions from the court. It would be advisable for you to appear in court on your own as opposed to being arrested by the police on the warrant.
