Trying to surrender as directed by judge.
I have showed up to the jail but the jail has no records of me coming and my court docket is "closed". It also stipulates that all penalties have been satisfied. I'm don't live in this state so I just can't "drive home" and wait it out.
You should have been given documentation in court as to your turn in date. You didn't say which court this occurred in (Doylestown or a specific district court). Nor did you say what the charges were or what the sentence was. This info would be needed. If the sentence was from Doylestown, the court should have given you a notice to surrender. If it happened in District Court, you would have to turn yourself in typically at that court (you would have been given a date) and typically the constable transports you to the prison.
Go to the court on Monday first thing and ask them what is going on. Or, you can always retain a lawyer to look into it.

I agree with Attorney Klein. A quick phone call to your Attorney would be able to answer your question. If he/she is unavailable, you will have to wait until Monday morning to get it squared away. Good luck.
Unclear what court this was, but you don't want the sword of Damocles dangling, so your lawyer can look into it
