My coworker is in jail for failure to appear on a burglary in the 2nd° charge when I called to get her bond they said there was no bond said that I have to call the courthouse to get a court date when I called the courthouse they said that she had no court date set that it was up to the judge when ever he decided to see her it could be a week it could be a month it could be a few months.
The judge will usually agree to lift a failure to appear warrant and release the defendant after they are brought in front of the judge for whatever hearing they missed. In my experience practicing in Anniston, most failure to appear warrants are issued after the defendant either misses their arraignment or their preliminary hearing. If it was an arraignment they probably already have an attorney. Notify their attorney immediately to let them know the defendant has been in jail and they should be able to get it resolved soon. If they don’t have an attorney, the defendant will likely be placed on the court’s docket within a month or so. Hiring an attorney could likely speed this process up.
