If you do not have an attorney you should hire one. There is most likely a warrant for your arrest. You should appear in court with your attorney and get this taken care of as soon as possible. The court will want to hear why you disrespected them by not appearing and answering I forgot will not get you far.

If you did not appear, there is likely a warrant for your arrest. You should contact an attorney to attend court with you to recall the warrant.
