Can a victim go to jail for not showing up to court in South Carolina?

Asked 10 months ago - Spartanburg, SC

My ex boyfriend went to jail for CDV and I was the victim. We went to court a few months ago and he asked for a jury trial. I have received a summons to appear in court again and can't miss work.
