Silverton, OR asked in DUI / DWI for Oregon

Q: I missed my first court appearance for a DUI charge in Oregon. Going to court tommorrow with my lawyer.

I had taken time off work on the 9th and somehow had it stuck in my head that the date was the ninth and that's what I had told my lawyer. When I called him today he told me I missed my date today and I have a bench warrant. What should I expect in the morning?

A: It will depend on the court. One of two things will happen, the bench warrant will be removed and a date will be set or you will be taken into custody until bail is posted if available to you.
