Defendant was on a 24 hr hold was issued a warrant held until preliminary hearing witness did not show defendant was released on OR but there is another court date what is this hearing for
I am guessing that either the witness is available now or you are mistaken that the witness was required at the previous hearing and the case is still pending. The defendant's attorney should answer these questions for the defendant.
Look the case up on Case Net (www.courts.mo.gov/casenet). The witness doesn't need to show up until subpoenaed for a hearing or trial. And if they are subpoenaed and don't show up the prosecutor will be given time to track them down. They can even be taken into custody and held until their testimony is given.
