Within my year probation I didn't pay my fines. So I have a vop summons to appear in court on Monday. I want to know is that yet? Should I have gotten atternoy or should the public defenders office gotten with me ahead time? I have papers to present to the judge due to medical reasons I wasn't able to pay.
It is up to you to hire private counsel and if not then the PD will be in court.
Bring your materials with you.
The issue will be ability to pay (not non-payment).
If you were able to pay and did not then you have a problem but if you were truly unable to pay then you may have violated but the violation is not willful and you cannot be punished.
Wishing you luck and hoping that I have been helpful in answering your question.
