Yes, you can.

There's nothing in the law that prevents you from traveling while you have an open pending misdemeanor case, unless a judge gives a specific instruction not to.

You just want to be sure that you are back in time for court, and that you don't miss any court dates, otherwise a bench warrant can be issued for your arrest for a failure to appear.

If you have an attorney representing you, then your attorney can appear in court on your behalf, which would prevent a bench warrant from being issued for a failure to appear.

I hope that helps!

Please let me know if you have any other questions about this. Also, please take a moment to rate me using the stars at the top of the page, as it's the only way experts are compensated for our time on the site. I do not receive a salary here at JustAnswer, and am only compensated for my time after receiving a rating of 3 stars or more (5 stars are always appreciated). The question won't close after rating, so you can still ask follow-up questions after. Thanks, ***** ***** it!
