Q: Why does my case status still say probation?

Why does my case status still say probation

After nine years, also noticed my case was assigned to collections.. I was 18 when i was paying payments but only owed 100 dollors

I guess i forgot about it till now.. never got notified or anything.. also did a background on myself and it said case closed.. I'm wondering if i could have a bench warrant?

A: need more info

i would assume though the case was over you were put on probably informal summary probation with conditions you were required to complete.

if you did not pay the fine then you violated a condition of probation and a bench warrant was issued.

you would probably need for your lawyer to put the matter on the calendar and then move to quash the BW.................and pay the fine beforehand if they will accept it.
