So, I talked to a clerk in Manatee Cty and she told me that if I failed to appear for my "disorderly intoxication" court date that a warrant would be issued. So... no just blowing this off. She said I can fax the judge to get the date extended or even pushed up (since I'll be in LA, CA at the time). And the court date that appeared on my forum when I was released from the jailhouse was totally wrong! I got info from her about a public defender who is automatically on my case and so I left a message with her(lawyer). Hopefully sometime today I'll get to speak with her to see how this whole thing is going to play out. Best case scenario for me is to never have to step foot in court... but today I'll find out something one way or the other.
