if you have failed to appear on drug charges does the law procedure (imparticular evidence suppression hearings ) still apply?
3 Answers from Attorneys
You will more than likely have a bench warrant for your arrest for failure to appear.
Failing to appear does not waive your right to file motions in your case, it just means you may end up in jail waiting for a trial if they find you. Seek the advice of an attorney about resolving both of these issues.

After you are arrested in the warrant and jailed, your attorney will be able to request the court allow you to file a motion to suppress. It will not make your case move faster, but you still the right to ask about the violation of your constitutional rights. Good luck.
