I was sentenced to 15 days work crew in January.
Had to have a hearing at work crew (3/11) because I was pregnant and couldn't do work crew. Instead, I was to provide proof of my pregnancy so I could opt for "community service."
Around 3/25, I went to the dr to get verification. @ the appt, my dr told me the baby had no heartbeat & miscarried 2 nights later. I wasn't given verification, given the situation- but was offered a note describing the circumstances if I ended up needing one. When I requested it, they ignored me, many many times. Now I have a warrant for not going.
I have court in Oregon on 6/15. Is there a way i can quash the warrant first without doing 15 days jail, so I can go to court? I NEED to go in person.
Any lawyers willing to help me, please say so, and I'll contact you.
The most common way to quash a warrant is to contact the court and ask if they will quash it. Much of this decision is discretionary. If proof could be obtained to support your story an attorney could probably help you with this. There is not an official legal process, just call the court and try to work with them.
