Q: I was arrested for simple robbery back in October of 2019. My bail bondsman called saying I missed a court date
I was never informed of this so said court date. Also isn’t there some kind of statue of limitations for them to bring me to court. It has been well over a year and a half and I haven’t been to any court dates because when I would call to check with the DA’s office to find out what was going on their reply was “ no sir not at the moment”. I’m not sure that I’ve even been arraigned on these said charges. When I got arrested the following day I went in front of the judge for him to tell me my charge and what my bond was going to be. Not once was I asked to enter into a plea be it Quilty, not Guilty or no Contest and isn’t this formality done at your arraignment? Please shed a little light on this matter for me. Thank You for any help.
A: You need to either hire a criminal attorney or contact thr public defenders office for you to get the warrant recalled.
A: Hire a local criminal defense attorney. They can probably search the records of the parish where the criminal charges are pending and answer your questions.
A: Call the bail bondsman and ask him for the information such as docket number, court division/Judge and when did you miss court. Also, hire a criminal defense attorney to represent you in this matter. Good luck.
