I received a traffic violation in January 2016 in Hawaii. In March 2016, I moved to a new address. Apparently, the court sent a letter that I was to appear in court in April 2016, but I never received the letter. I flew back to the states at the end of March and returned to Hawaii in April and missed the court appearance I didn't know about. I'm told I have a bench warrant and bail is $250 which I can pay. I can't afford an attorney and I'm scared to turn myself in.

How can one tell if they have a criminal court case (status

How can one tell if they have a criminal court case (status hearing) at a county or district court house in Texas? If a bail bond was posted to get you out of jail, should not the bail bondsman know if you have a hearing coming up? What happens if the authorities have misplaced the paperwork and not filed for a hearing?

I was notified that an Arrest Warrant was issued for me for

I was notified that an Arrest Warrant was issued for me for non appearance. The person that went down and took out the warrant knew were I lived, because he put up my ceiling fans. I put down the wrong address. I did not get the notice until about a week or so after the court date. So I contacted my mom and my boyfriend and told them the situation. I was instructed by my mom to go and turn myself in and that way you will get a chance to go in front of a judge. She told me to contact a bail bondsman before I go. I called a bail bonds office and I was told what I needed to do to handle the matter. I have never been in trouble before. So, I turned myself in and I was bailed out the next day by my boyfriend. I went to court yesterday, and the said I was not on the list. So I went to the clerk's office and got all the paperwork that they had on the whole situation. I was being charged a felony for theft by deception. I could not believe I was being charged, when it was my ex-boyfriend who did the illegal doings. I have all the documents that can show that I did not do anything illegal. The work that I did do your him, I have a signed contract stating what services I was performing and I did do what I was paid to do. I am be wrongly charged for something that my ex did. This is effecting my livelihood and I could lose my job, all because of this. I have been employed over 8 years and I have had a clean record throughout my whole life until this situation. So I am asking for some guidance in this matter.
