    Exclamation Bench Warrant for Failure to Appear, but Received No Notice of Court Date

    My question involves an arrest warrant from the State of: OHIO

    Charge is Burglary (Felony 2, I believe) -OHIO
    Notices were supposed to be sent out regarding court date, but none were recieved. March 23, bench warrant was issued due to faliure to appear. My friend called me today and told me about it in the paper. There isnt any proof on the burglary charge anyway, as I didnt do it. What are the possiblilities this could go?

    "Notices were supposed to be sent" - by whom? (e.g, the court, your lawyer....) Were they sent? If they were sent to the wrong address, how did that happen?

    Bud, you have some responsibility to know your court date. Make no mistake if you don't know your court date - find out. Ask your bail bondsman. Ask your your attorney. Ask the court. Sitting around like a small child waiting to be told what to do is asking for trouble. A burglary charge is serious and you need to stay on top of what's going on with your case.

    Call your lawyer and have him arrange for your next appearance (if you have a lawyer). Otherwise, call the court and find out if they'll give you an appearance date or they expect you to turn yourself in.
