It is important that you do not miss your court date. Failing to appear may have a number of negative consequences:

  • You may be charged with the additional crime of failure to appear.
  • Being found guilty of failing to appear may result in a jail sentence and/or a fine.
  • Failing to appear may be considered by the judge in determining your sentence on the original charge.

Nebraska Trial Courts ensure a fair venue for all parties:

  • Courts provide neutral and consistent judgments to all defendants. The judge who presides over your hearing will be fair and open-minded.
  • Courts treat all defendants charged with the same kind of offense in the same way.
  • Courts treat all defendants politely, with courtesy, dignity, and respect.
  • Courts take defendants’ concerns seriously. We understand that you might be worried about the hearing and its consequences, and we are prepared to listen to your concerns and offer explanations as best we can.
  • Courts allow defendants to explain the situation from their perspective.
