New Jersey Criminal Defense Attorney Discusses Failure to Appear in Municipal Court
As an experienced New Jersey Criminal Defense Attorney I regularly get asked what happens if an individual fails to appear in municipal court. If you fail to appear in court on a New Jersey municipal court traffic matter, ordinarily the court will send out a second notice. That notice will inform you that if you then fail to appear for that notice, a warrant issue or a bail will be set, and a notice will then be sent down to the Department of Motor Vehicles. You won’t even realize it, but that will result in your driving license being suspended. If you fail to appear in court on a criminal matter, a warrant will issue by the judge and you will need to report to court immediately. If any of those situations are your situation, notify me immediately and we’ll have these warrants vacated.
