Legal Question in Criminal Law in Texas

Daughter has been arrested credit/debit card abuse. $6000 bond. She has been in jail for a week. How long on average before a court date is set? She has other traffic tickets in a different county. Will those fines be taken care of with time served or will she be going to court in the other county? Denton County Texas is the jail she is in now. Collin County is where the traffic tickets are.

She will not go to court on the traffic tickets while in custody on this case. City warrants are not used to hold someone or extradite because it is too costly. She can send a form to Collin County asking for credit for the time she is in jail toward her fines in that county.

She needs a good lawyer.
