I was arrested for DUI and went to first court date. I did not recieve notice of second court date and missed the date and a bench warrant is now issued. I live in North Augusta, SC but warrant is in richmond county Georgia.
I would contact an attorney from that area immediately to discuss the circumstances. South Carolina is part of the interstate compact. So, if you are convicted in Georgia, then your license may also be suspended in South Carolina. Also, if you were traveling through Georgia and happen to get stopped for a traffic violation, then you will be taken into custody for the bench warrant. The problem is not going away, and eventually it will catch up with you.
