What happens if you miss a court date and reschedule but you miss the court date you rescheduled also?

Asked over 2 years ago - Chicago, IL

The person that missed the court date was suppose to appear to find out if he will be getting off probation. He could not make the first court date so he rescheduled, but he also missed the second court date that was rescheduled. Will he be arrested?

    If he was given a date to appear either by probation or the court which he did not request, he might be looking at a warrant.
