Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
Hello, I am happy to help.
You need to call your lawyer and see if he still represents you. It depends on what your agreement was, so you may have to pay him extra to attend this hearing.
You will need to attend the hearing. There really isn't a way around that unless you can send in a lawyer for you. It is really important that you go there, even without a lawyer, and explain to the judge why you have not completed the community service. If you have a good reason, the judge may give you an extension. Just be as honest and forthcoming as you can so that the judge believes that you are sincere, and you have a shot getting an extension.
Best of luck,
Sorry, I see there is a new feature where I have to check a box if I am ready to close out. I just did that so you are set to close out. Positive feedback will ensure that the system does not keep your money, and that I get paid for my work with you.
