Why You Should Never Miss a Court Date When You're Out on Bail, Hartford, Connecticut

Unless you’ve been charged with a serious, violent crime, the court will generally let you post bail and wait for your next hearing at home. While it’s easy to get wrapped up in your day-to-day affairs, missing a single court date could have an impact on your future and the financial security of your loved ones. No matter how minor your charges might be, it’s crucial that you appear at every single court date and show up on time.

Bench Warrants

bailYour court date won’t go on without you. Instead, the judge will issue a bench warrant for your arrest, giving police the authority to take you back to jail until the issue of your hearing is settled. In some states, including Connecticut, failure to appear is a separate criminal offense, so you could find yourself facing additional class A misdemeanor charges. Even if you’re acquitted of your original charges, you could still find yourself paying hefty fines and spending up to a year in jail.

Forfeiture of Bail

Bail is a form of security guaranteeing that you’ll make all of your scheduled court dates. If you miss even one, the state will likely forfeit the bond and might revoke your right to post it a second time. If your family members have used their savings, cars, or home equity as collateral for your bail bond, the consequences of missing a court hearing can be disastrous.

In a few words, avoid missing a court date. A failure to appear charge is something bail companies would take a closer look the next time you are in need of a bail bondsman.
