There's no point in going to court. It isn't a criminal case: it's a civil one, so I wouldn't waste your aunt's time. You have 3 choices at this point:
1/ Offer to pay them. And seeing as you're poor at this point, that's probably not an option.
2/ File for bankruptcy.
3/ Let the judgment go through. You owe the money, so you can't contest it.
What happens when you have a judgment against you? The answer to that is, it depends on what state you live in. In North Carolina, they can't take your wages, but in Alabama, they can. If you live in California, they can even take public benefits. The law is very specific.
My advice is to let the judgment go through. If you have a credit collections on your credit report, a judgment isn't going to make a bit of difference: they both stay on there for a minimum of 7 years.
Educate yourself about state exemptions, and send a certified letter to the collections company asking them to not contact you (see reference). Then get on with your life and forget about it.
