Legal Question

Asked on: 9/26/13, 5:15 pm

Hello,please help me. My daughter was arrested today charged with violation of probation for a previous misdemeanor charge under $500. We have hired a private attorney and paid hi a retainer, and he did not show up to the court date today. My daughter was unable to pay the restitution owed is why she was charged with a violation. Also, each time she was arrested she was not read her Miranda rights. I am confused as to why the judge did not issue a continuance since my attorney did not show up. Her bail was set at $11000, and this is the first time she has ever been in trouble. Please advise on what I should do if anything. Thank you.
