Informed the court before appearance date that they were moving out of state. Court said no record of defendant, probably a paperwork issue, just call back on date. On the day of court, called in the morning and was told they had no record of defendant. Same answer was given on several different calls (before and after date). Charge does not show up in online court searches or any background checks tested (arrest does). While paying a (different) ticket, defendant entered the Citation number into the system and found there was a bench warrant on the case. There is still no record by name when calling court or searching court records online.
What is defendant dealing with? How did it happen? Likelihood of returning to CA? Probable punishment? Already seeking representation to quash/defend.Thank you to both responders so far. I apologize if the question was confusing, there is a character limit and I may have complicated things through omission. As posted in the initial question, lawyers are already being contacted. Was just wondering why it was so difficult to find, and if there were any ways to deal with it beyond seeking representation.
