Answer: To start...In Arizona, missing a court date is a serious offense. If you missed a felony court date, the punishment can be (besides having a warrant issued for your arrest) is another class 5 felony charge(Arizona Revised Statute 13-2507). If you missed a misdemeanor court date, the punishment can be (besides having a warrant issued for your arrest), is another class 1 misdemeanor charge (Arizona Revised Statute 13-2506). Dealing with the missed court date and charges associated with it, is in your best interest. The longer you wait or avoid it...the worse it gets in the eyes of the court. In certain scenarios, you can contact the court directly and potentially work out an agreement to have the warrant "quashed," but you would still have a new court date set. Without knowing the type of crime in which you are accused and for which you missed court...I would advise you to speak with a criminal defense attorney who can better guide you through the process of having the warrant "quashed" and setting a new court date.
