I really need your help. I was accused of Shoplifting (Theft) Last September 1 2014 and was detained for 2 days. I paid for my bail and just waiting for my arraignment schedule. However, I just received it today, (October 9), but the arraignment schedule posted in the letter was already overdue, (September 30 2014). My next arraignment schedule is on October 29.
I called the branch 31 office where my case is, and asking what should I do. The girl whom I talked to insisted that I need to go there and talk to her since I already have a warrant of arrest.
What should I do? Is it true that I already have a warrant of arrest or she just want me to bribe her? Do I need to go there to do or file something? Will they arrest me even if its not my fault that I received the subpoena later than the arraignment schedule? Do I need to talked to a Pao Lawyer already?Will they arrest me if I just go there on my 2nd arraignment since I did not attend the 1st one?
Really hoping for your help. I am just poor and I do not have any lawyer.Thank you.
