DearCustomer- The best thing he can do is to contact an attorney to accompany him to court since he probably now has a warrant out for his arrest for failure to appear. This of course is compounded by the fact that he failed to pay the previous tickets and had a previous warrant.
He should at least contact the court if he can't afford an attorney and make arrangements to appear at the next court session for traffic tickets. Generally if a defendant appears on his own and makes arrangements to pay the outstanding fines the court will release him. If they have to come and arrest him he would then face a likely bond in order to get released.
This situation appears to have compounded itself due to failure to appear in court. He needs to get it resolved before it compounds further.
