My son had a court case on June 22, 2018 which he appeared for the state asked for a continuance because the arresting officer never showed up, on June 27, 2018 an body attachment was issued for a F.T.A.
This sounds like a mistake. Your son's attorney should file a motion asking the court to recall the warrant. The motion should be granted and then your son's case would be set for trial. If he does not have an attorney, he needs one.
This answer is being given for general informational purposes only and is not protected by the attorney-client privilege since this is a public forum.

If a client needs specific legal advice or opinions, he or she should retain counsel for advice or to undertake representation.
It sounds like there is something missing here. If your son was present, and the court continued the case, there could be no warrant. If your son was not there at a time that the case was called, the court may have issued a warrant. Further investigation and a discussion with the ASA in court that day is warranted.
Attorney answers to questions are for general purposes only and do not establish an attorney-client relationship. Posters should never give specific details about criminal matters in this forum, and certainly never provide a statement that could be used against them.
