Good morning. Do you know if a warrant was issued for his arrest?
Thank you for the reply. He can look online, through the clerk of courts website or call the court, when they open this morning. If there is an active warrant and he tries to return and enter the US, he likely would be picked up on it and taken into custody and held and brought back before the court. If he wants to now resolve this, he would need to hire a criminal defense attorney and file a motion for the warrant to be lifted and the case reset, so he can appear in person to work this out. He needs to see if they would agree to allow him to perform the community service or if they are set on jail time, based upon his absconding .
