My question involves criminal law for the state of: Illinois
About two years ago, I was pulled over in Will County for expired registration while on my way to the DMV to get it renewed. I renewed it and the next month went to court to see if I could get it dropped since I renewed it 15 minutes after I got the ticket, but I misread the date as being the 19th instead of the 14th. They wanted $70 to reschedule and I didn't have it, so I just forgot about it. It been 2 years now and this year I think I'll actually have money to take care of it since I'm receiving Pell Grants for school and living back at home. My questions are, will I have to reschedule another court date, should I get an attorney, do I have a bench warrant right now, and what kind of punishment am I looking at?
Thank you for your help!
