You are supposed to appear when summoned, or else you risk being held in contempt and a warrant for your arrest. An experienced criminal defense attorney can help you evaluate the prosecution's case, any defenses that you might have, and any plea offer that might be made, so that you can decide whether to go to trial. Consider seeking a confidential consultation.
If you do not appear, you may well be subject to an arrest warrant. What you need is someone standing beside you to argue any mitigating circumstance, negotiate with the prosecution and instruct on how to work through this process.
