What Happens if I Don't Appear for Court for my DUI Charge?
Most traffic tickets do not require a court appearance but DUI charges do require a court appearance. Failure to appear for a DUI can result in a suspension of your driver's license as well as a bench warrant being issued for your arrest.
A bench warrant is issued by a judge when a person fails to appear on their court date. These warrants differ from arrest warrants because officers generally do not come and knock on your door. Instead, your name goes into a statewide computer system that law enforcement uses. If you are stopped for a traffic violation or any other reason, the officer will be able to see the warrant, and you will be taken into custody.
If you missed a court date in Fort Valley GA or anywhere else in Peach County and a bench warrant is issued for your arrest, it is best to handle the warrant directly. By hiring a Fort Valley DUI Lawyer, we will take an active approach to resolve your case with the court and make sure your rights are protected. After the bench warrant issue is resolved, then the attorney can start working on your failure to appear case and will help you resolve your missed court appearance.
