Or you fucking don't show up in court you bag of hay!
Well, at least it shows how much of a bag of hay you are.
@Firesphere this is the person who was arrested not showing up? That’s going to make the outcome worse for them: courts are very disapproving of people not showing up.
(Sorry it sounds like you have to go through the court process twice :-( )
@ewenmcneill Yeps, he didn't show up. Arrest warrant is out. It's enraging, but I can't do anything (that is not illegal, that is, and I don't want to get in to trouble :) )
@Firesphere totally understand the frustration!
But this will most likely mean jail until the trial, and probably increase the likelihood of a jail sentence rather than a diversion programme.
