I just got out the county jail for violating a O.P,which was a misdemeanor. I violated it again while I was locked up by calling my victim,which the second time is a felony. No charges were filed and I did my county Time for the misdemeanor and was released back on parole. Now that ive been out for a week,14 felony charges were just filed yesterday for violating the o.p. again for the phone calls. Why hasn't a warrant been issued? The website says the court date is a "notice to appear". Does that mean I might not get arrested tomorrow?
First off, you need to stop contacting the victim. Secondly, you need to hire an attorney to appear with you. A warrant could be issued and the State will probably file a Petition to Revoke on the original charge. Even if no warrant is issued, they can ask to set bond on the PTR and have you taken into custody.
I appreciate your morbid curiosity with criminal procedure, however, you need a very good criminal defense counsel and not an idle discussion on the warrant issuance.
