I got a noise ordinance fine a couple of years ago. I didnt go to court because I moved before the summons got there. Now I have a warrant for that county and I need to know what I'm in for. What does an infraction followed by failure to appear in court end up with as far as penalties. I want to take care of it but if it means I will be in jail then there's no deal. They tell me to pay them a bond and then go to court but what will happen in court? I thought they would give me a fine anywhere up to $500 but can jail time accompany that even if you dont have a record? I'm really distressed and just found this out today.
