My question involves criminal law for the state of: VA
In 2007 I was placed on a suspended imposition of sentence for assault and battery. I plead no lo contendre. Since then I've had 2 traffic infractions: failure to update registration and license and an improper driving charge. My question is do I have to appear in court for these charges? Do I risk being thrown in jail over these charges? The piece of paper I received after I gave my plea said no criminal offenses including any jailable traffic offenses. I assume those aren't jailable traffic offenses.
If I need to appear in court will my lawyer contact me, will the court contact, or do I just show up on my own. My question is do I need to appear in court for these charges.
