I have to appear in front of criminal court in NYC today for illegal possession of muse accident, which is apparently a crime in NYC. I have a pink summon handed to me by the police officer. However, I'm considering not to appear in front of the court due to severe health problem.( though I don't have an official medical document). My question is: If i won't appear in front of the court today what's going to happed next? : a) will court plead me guilty automatically and send a fine to my home address? Or b)will the judge issue arrest warrant and police officer come to my home in order to arrest me? C) generally speaking, how serious crime illegal possession of muse is in NYC?
Why dies it take so long? I paid extra $10 for the urgency. Are you sleeping?
