It is most likely too late. You usually have only 120 days to reopen a ticket but as Atty. Woolf noted, in some circumstances it could be longer.See question

The defendant is facing serious jail time for the new charges and the old charges. Failure to Appear for a felony is a D felony, which exposes a person to five years of jail. Failure to Appear for a misdemeanor is an A misdemeanor which exposes a person to a year of jail. The firearms charge is a felony and may carry mandatory jail time. The DUI, depending on whether it was a first or a subsequent also could. I would expect the bond to also be significant.See question
I was arrested recently for prescription pills not being mine and in the wrong bottle. I'm a first time offender, I want to know if I'll see jail time.
Drug offenses are complicated because there are many different laws. If the charge is just possession and it is your first time, you will likely be eligible for a diversionary program which, if successful, would prevent jail and a conviction. You should hire an attorney because every criminal case is serious.See question

If this is your first time and you are a juvenile, the case may go non-judicial, meaning that probation will give you some sort of program or alternative to going to court. If it goes to court, your first appearance will be the arraignment. The judge will inform you of your rights and the case will likely be continued. You should hire an attorney or apply for a public defender.See question
I've recently got caught shoplifting last month at whole food I receive a letter in the mail stating "The letter states we are now serving you with notice, per the attach notice of exclusion from premise and notice of traspassing to that effect." ...
No. If you were served in a small claims suit, there would be a summons. If it's a regular civil lawsuit, you would have to be served by a marshal. That is most likely just a letter saying to stay away and that if you go back you could be arrested for criminal trespass.See question

A couple of years ago I feel on a difficult time and was homeless and gave TEMPORARY custody of my daughter to a family member thru DCF....still remaining very active in her life TO THIS VERY DAY....but Along the years I have stuggled with depres...
Temporary custody, through an OTC (order of temporary custody) is just that: temporary. It only lasts through disposition of a neglect petition. Chances are there was a transfer of guardianship or commitment. Is DCF still involved? There are things you can do; it just depends on the current situation. You should contact an attorney who can help you figure it out.See question

If it's a criminal case, and it should be because he's 19, then it is public and anyone could attend. Whether you will get into trouble for missing school is up to your school.See question
