San Antonio, TX |

I'm 18 but the truancy warrant says its from 2011. I am on ssi and the warrant says I need to pay 800$ but I can't?can there be like a waiver for that? Also I was unaware that I was even truant and had to go to court can I fight against that or something? ?

  1. Truancy is usually a class c misdemeanor. You can go down to municipal court and speak directly with the city attorney's and try to work out a deal. I'm assuming if you can't pay the $800 then you can't pay an attorney to handle this for you.
