Failure to appear at court is a serious offense that can result in mandatory jail time. If you miss a simple traffic appearance or any other type of court appearance a bench warrant will be issued against you. Failure to resolve the bench warrant could result in further fines or jail time.
If you have a Failure to Appear (F.T.A) you cannot simply “take care of it.” Appearing in court could result in immediate incarceration.
Upon receipt of a citation or other requirement to appear, the individual also bears the risk of additional, separate charges if they fail to do so.
Schedule a consultation with Attorney David Brown to come up with a resolution to your matter.
