Unless your attorney has instructed you otherwise, you should go to Court tomorrow, dressed appropriately for Court (coat and tie if you have them if not at least in a shirt and pants with your shirt tucked into your pants). Explain to your attorney that you did not complete your community service - you had better have a decent reason - and then keep your fingers crossed that your attorney can convince the judge that you deserve additional time to complete the community service. If you are given additional time - don't jerk around again - go complete your community service and whatever else your attorney and / or the court instructs you to do. Or if an active sentence was initially suspended, you can elect to do your active time instead.
