Can my my boyfriend get released on drug court if he owes money on a missed court date
1 attorney answer
It is not possible to tell exactly what his situation might be without more information. However, it could be that the $1,175 is a default judgment amount for a citation (or series of citations) that he could have come to court to challenge. When you don't go to court on those dates, a "no contest" plea is entered on behalf of the defendant and the defendant is found to owe the amount(s) of the citation(s). When these amounts are not paid, the court can order that the person owing the money must sit in custody as a punishment for not paying. That COULD be your boyfriend's situation, but I cannot be absolutely certain with the information that you have posted. You should have your boyfriend speak to his attorney about this situation to get clarification. Then your boyfriend can share the information with you.
