Criminal Lawyer: Colleen Grady, Attorney and Counselor at Law replied 2 years ago

You need to contact your PO and tell him what happened. You is the one that can clear up the fact that he told you not to report. Also, he will have your new address on file and will be able to tell the court you gave him the new address

The PO should appear with you in court.

Decide on a day to meet your PO and go to the court together.

If everything you say is accurate, the court will vacate the warrant and you can pay your fees

Why would the collection ladie tell me to go there
Criminal Lawyer: Colleen Grady, Attorney and Counselor at Law replied 2 years ago

You could go to her but I think it is important that you go with your PO. They can lock you up because of the bench warrant. You want to make sure you have that cleared.

I understand. Are you able to pay anything now? You could make a payment before going back to court. You can do this by computer. Here is the link. That will show the judge good faith: https://ujsportal.pacourts.us/ePay/SubscribedCountyDetails.aspx?CountyName=Clearfield

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Not sure on that but I imagine so or I wouldn't of had a court date
Criminal Lawyer: Colleen Grady, Attorney and Counselor at Law replied 2 years ago

As soon as you can, you need to pay something. You need to go to court also before you are picked up by the police on the bench warrant. If you get picked up by the police they will put you in jail until you can see the judge. The judge may decide to keep you in jail for a period of time if not satisfied that about why you did not come back to court.

I will probably pay somthig in it when I go but it wont be alot
Criminal Lawyer: Colleen Grady, Attorney and Counselor at Law replied 2 years ago

You have to pay something. You also have to go to the court to clear the warrant and explain your circumstances. Ask for a payment plan and never miss a court date again.
