If you have failed to go to court & have another court date coming up, what will happen?

Well my friend failed to go to today, & she has another court date in November for the same charges.. Which is for not having a drivers license.. I'm guessing she has a warrant now. What will happen when she shows up to court in November?

    Going to court isnt something you can blow off and it goes away.

    The fines/ charges keep adding up.

    Now, instead of a small fine, she may be looking at some jail time, unless she has a good reason for not showing up last time.

    Plus she should have a lawyer now, which will cost more than the fine probably wouldve been.

    .

    When you snub the courts..this is called contempt of court.

    She'll be arrested and tossed into county lock-up. Lesson here kids is she skipped court for a nothing charge (no jail time-just a fine) and increased it to a bench warrant ( jail time and a fine) oh the ignorance of youth.
