The reason why I missed the date was I couldn't get a ride there. I don't have my license because I lost it when I got my dui didn't make the court date so I couldn't get it back. Was also unable to find a ride Friday mornings at 7am to the court house in another town. No public transportation to get there either. I completed my class and have the papers to prove it. Just curious what I'm looking at in time. My biggest concern is that my original court date was in oct. turning myself in to the court tomorrow. Finally got s a ride set up.
Did you attend the MADD VIP class? It matters on the judge and if you've had any prior hiccups in court or on probation. I'd hope the judge would scold you only and accept the proof of completion late.
Failure to file proof of completion of MADD can result in a warrant for your arrest. Its a simple, 1 hr program, but many people fail to take it seriously, then are surprised when a warrant issues for their arrest. Its unclear whether you actually did it or not, but if not, have your explanation why ready, and request more time get it done. A private attorney can do all this without your appearance, so may be worth the investment.
In my experience if you've completed the class but failed to show proof there shouldn't be too much of a sanction. However, there is likely a warrant out for your arrest and a petition for a violation of probation filed. You should get to court ASAP to show the proof. If you can't make it an attorney can show proof for you. Take care of this sooner than later.
