I missed my court date on Dec 2nd due to financial hardship and personal obligations.
If you missed that date, your file is likely being processed for a warrant. You can go into court and request the matter be placed on calendar to be arraigned. You can also get an attorney to clear the warrant and handle the matter. It is uncertain whether the court has the availability to place your case on 12/9.
This reply should NOT be considered a legal opinion of your case / inquiry. At this time I do not have sufficient factual/legal documentation to give a complete answer to your question and there may be more to the issues you raised then I have set out in my brief reply
If you missed a scheduled court date, you likely have a warrant now. Consider retaining an attorney to appear with or for you to clear the warrant. Otherwise, go see the court clerk ASAP.

If you had court on December 2 and failed to appear, it is likely you have a warrant for your arrest. You need to go to court and request to be "added" to the courts calendar, then you can explain to the judge why you missed court and then move forwrad contesting your case. A lawyer can also help you with this situation and defending your case.
This answer is not legal advice, it may not even be relevant to the question answered, it definitely is does not establish an attorney/client relationship.
