The passage of time can only help your case, since you do have a right to a speedy trial in violation cases. It is the State's job to prove it's case against you. As a result, if they ordered you to appear at a date that they are closed, then it is their job to fix this mistake, not yours.

That said, I would recommend hiring an attorney to more fully flesh out your options.
