Hi - my name is ***** ***** I’ll be glad to assist.
Generally, the court requires a person’s appearance in any case where jail time is possible (which is basically anything other than a speeding ticket or other minor traffic citation). Thus, it is likely that you will have to appear in person.

The only real possibility to avoid that would be to hire a local lawyer and see if the court will allow him/her to stand in for you and to agree to pay the fines for the offenses, etc. However, most courts are going to still want you there because of the possible jail time that these charges carry.
