I missed a court date. I am being sued, so it is small claims

Resolved Question:

I missed a court date. I am being sued, so it is small claims court. I was ordered to appear and answer the 'interrogatories'. Pardon the spelling. My question-what is the penalty? Will I go to jail? or can this be handled without me being locked up? The case is in Morgan County Indiana
