Hi Jacustomer,If tomorrow is only your second court date, you can very likely get an extension from the judge if you have any good reason at all for not complying, such as you didn't have the money for the classes,.assuming that's true You haven't been under court mandate very long, and so, especially if it is your first contact with the criminal system,on a case of this type the judge is likely to be lenient. (Noth happy, but lenient). The worst thing you can do, however, would to be too scared to show up at all. Then any opportunity for a second chance will go out the window by the tiime you are picked up on the warrant.
