I failed to appear on a criminal traffic citation, will calling the clerk of prevent a warrant?

Question

I was stopped and received a citation for driving with no license FL statue 322.03 (1). I was unaware the court date was on the ticket because the officer was very brief and in a hurry. It was this passing Wednesday (08/08/17) and I missed it. I checked the case details and it said “Case Update pending (08/09/17)”. How should I go about resolving this issue and what are my options?

Answer

Most likely, the Judge issued a bench warrant, and license suspension which would make this matter much worst. At this point you can hire an attorney to get the warrant recalled and handle the underlying case to protect your criminal record and your drivers license. Best of luck.
