Knox, IN asked in Criminal Law and Traffic Tickets for Indiana

Q: Are there consequences for rescheduling a court case multiple times?

It's a " never having a license" charge. Been ongoing for over a year because my sister keeps rescheduling for various reasons. Does that make it worse in the long run

A: It depends, if she is working towards a license then no, however, if she is wasting the Court's time, then it could have a negative impact.

A: Eventually, a judge might decide to deny a continuance, but they will usually give an indication if they are getting weary of delays, like indicating "no further continuances" in the order.
