At this time, his attorney need to file a motion with the court and set it for hearing, asking the Judge to reinstate the bond. The attorney needs to advise the Judge that the defendants failure to appear was not intentional, as notice was never provided and it was a mistake on part of the attorney, to tell him to appear. The Judge should not hold this against your son, if his attorney failed to inform him to appear and the attorney should have appeared on his behalf as well, to explain the situation. The Judge should order him released and the bond to be reinstated, since this was not his fault.
