Capias

I'm currently going through a

divorce in Hampton VA and missed a

court date and the judge issued a

Capias and and a warrant for my

arrest. I was unaware of the

warrant and when I went to the

police station to find out what they

wanted to talk to me about, I was

arrested. The magistrate denied me

bond, and I had to have a friend

retain and attorney to get a bond

hearing and as a result I was

released after posting a 5K bond. I

have to return to court in August to

answer the charges. I didn't

purposely miss the original court

date, but I'm concerned. What can I

expect?
