I missed a court date, does this mean I’m automatically going to jail?

I missed a scheduled court date this last week. My attorney said he would speak with the judge, but I haven't heard from him yet and I am scared I may go directly to jail. The next court date wasn't scheduled until next week.

    Not necessarily, but it does mean there is now an arrest warrant for you. Why are you asking us out here instead of your attorney?

    You need to speak to your attorney about this. He has more information regarding your case and the reason you missed your court appearance than anyone on this forum.

    Talk to your lawyer, it sounds like you need to be there next week and there will not be a remand.
