it's not for me.

i know it's a fine, set by the court, but does anyone have any idea what the range of the fine is? i spent most of the morning trying to get in touch with the court after the sheriff's department told me they didn't have the info, but no luck so far.

any information would be helpful.

My younger bro spent time in jail for not showing up to court for this ticket. They only keep you 24 hours if you dont pay and release you time served.

So you can think of it as a day off with out pay, unless you put in a vacation day before the warrant is issued.

look up what jurisdiction the ticket was under and then look it up. probably your best bet.
