I was arrested last year and was released on a PR bond. I only went to one court hearing which got reset and my court appointed lawyer did not appear. I was supposed to get another court date in the mail, but I forgot to report a change of address. Now looking at my case history, there are multiple proceedings that I was unaware of until now. My case status shows “disposed”, litigant type shows “principal” and docket type shows “judgement nisi”. I have no idea what any of this means. I have more information on my case history as well. My main concern is, do I have an arrest warrant or will I be forced to serve time in jail?
