I handle situations like this all the time. If you are not a citizen you can be denied re-entry because of the pending case plus the court could issue a bench warrant for your arrest if you miss court and you would be taken into custody at the airport on your way back in. Hire a criminal defense lawyer as there may be something than can be done.
