Legal Question

Asked on: 9/17/13, 5:46 pm

I missed a court date several years ago for a miss demeanor possession of marijuana. I was told that things like this get expunged after a certain amount of time. My question is can I still get in trouble for this in the state of Missouri? Would it pop up if I get pulled over? What can I do to take care of this if still necessary?

Thanks

J

If there is a failure to appear warrant, it remains. Any officer who pulls you over could arrest you. They don't always do this, but they could. If there is a warrant, you could surrender yourself, and post bail or bond. Or, you could hire an attorney to appear before the judge and ask the Court to recall (cancel) the warrant.

Good luck
