I changed your topic. A judge will issue a show cause when someone fails to appear for a criminal trial. You should prepare to turn yourself in so you are not picked up ion the middle of the night. You can get a lawyer ready to help you in Amherst - good luck!
Answers to questions are meant to be general information that an asker can use to further understand a situation and do NOT create an attorney-client relationship. This forum can help non-lawyers learn something they can use if and when they retain a lawyer outside the context of this site.
A show cause hearing is for an argument to be made regarding why you not receive a jail sentence. If that is the case and you could be facing a jail sentence and you can’t afford an attorney, the court will appoint one to represent you.
