A: It’s impossible to say without more information. If you have your case number available a call to a lawyer could be informative. In the future the night before an appearance in criminal court isn’t the ideal time to decide it’s worth taking seriously.

A: There is no way to know what you have court for without more info. But you need to figure out a way to get there, otherwise you’re like to end up with a warrant.

A: You could look up the case on the court's website to see the charges, using the court file number or citation number. Some court appearances this year have been remote via computer or phone. Call Court Administration with any question about that. Otherwise missing a court appearance will result in an arrest warrant. Call me or another criminal defense lawyer for help, during the day.
