What are the Penalties for Failing to Appear in Court?
People who have missed a court date for a misdemeanor – whether or not it is a driving offense – are sometimes at risk of being arrested.
When a person misses their court date for a misdemeanor or a felony, the judge has the authority to issue an Order for Arrest for that defendant. Our firm knows what to do in this situation and can work swiftly to protect your rights.
Sometimes the easiest way to strike an order for arrest or a failure to appear in Cabarrus County involves reaching some agreement with the prosecutor in exchange for an agreement to strike the failure to appear or order for arrest.
