my court date was for not signing up on time for my community service for my fDUI
Criminal Defense Attorney
Where I practice you would probably be arrested if you show up and there's an outstanding warrant. You can minimize the chances of this by having a good truthful excuse and an attorney with you. Excuses that don't work: 1) I forgot; 2) my bus was late 3) there was too much traffic 4) I slept late 5) because my alarm clock didn't go off or 6) I forgot to set it. This is jus a short list; I have heard hundreds of excuses that landed someone in jail.
