    Answered . Did you miss a court appearance? If so you have a bench warrant which needs to be recalled. Is your charge a felony? Did you have an attorney? If so contact them and give them your proof of completion and explain why you are 8 days late. Resolve it immediately because you could get arrested.

    Answered . If an attorney walks the matter in without your appearance and finalizes everything with the court, then the consequences may be less than if you walked it in if you don't have good cause. If you have good cause then the consequences may not be that bad.
