If you fail to appear for any reason on any charge, a warrant will be issued for your arrest. If the failure to appear is on a traffic violation, your driving privilege will be suspended. Once a warrant is issued, a court appearance is mandatory. You can choose to be arrested on this warrant and bond to receive a new court date or if you meet certain requirements you can apply for the Warrant Recall Act. Please contact the Court office for your options. Any license suspensions will remain in effect until the resolution of the case.
