Hello friend. My name is XXXXX XXXXX welcome to JustAnswer. Please note: (1) this is general information only, not legal advice, and, (2) there may be a slight
delay between your follow ups and my replies.
I am very sorry for your friend's situation. If someone does not make it to a court date, then often the Judge will issue a warrant for their arrest so if they are picked up, they will be held until the next hearing unless they convince the Judge to allow them to bond out before it (again, if they have already bonded out once).
What your friend has to first do is to call any bail bondsman in the county that she is in, to see (1) if there is a warrant out for her arrest and (2) if it is quashable.
1) If there is a warrant but if it is quashable
(ask the bail bondman), a payment may be put down, and a new date would be issued by the Court that she can go to.
2) If there is a warrant and it is not quashable, she may have to surrender herself to the authorities, and then the Judge may allow her to bond out, or otherwise she'd have to await the next hearing while incarcerated.
3) If there is no warrant, then she can call the Court tomorrow during business hours to see when her next court date is. If not sure of the court's number, please tell me what court it is and I can possibly provide it.
Please note: I aim to give you genuine
information and not necessarily to tell you only what you wish to hear. Please, rate me on the quality of my information and do not punish me for my honesty. I understand that hearing things less than optimal is not easy, and I empathize.
