I got a notice in the mail for a crime commited in another state that I need to appear in court in a few months. I thought the notice was for the trail but called the court and apparantly it's for a "calendar call".
I was told that is where you are offered a plea bargain or say if you want to go to trail.
Can you guys give me a little more detailed rundown of how this day in court works?
My lawyer expressed that he will try and get it to where I don't have to show myself as it's across the country and I don't really have $500+ to spend on going there for a couple of days.
Is that something pretty common or pretty rare that the lawyer can stand in for you on this day in court?
One last question...might be a dumb one but I'm paranoid about this. Can the judge, on "calendar day" revoke the bond and place you back in jail until further proceedings or is my imagination going completely off track here?
