How to avoid jailtime?

Q: I accidentally missed court, so I rescheduled my date. Unfortunately, I missed the second date. The court asked me to come in in two days to try and clear the warrant. What should I do in order to show the judge I’m taking my case seriously and should not be arrested? (Munhall, PA)

A: Show up for court this time. If you can afford a lawyer bring one with you. If you go in alone, dress like you are going to a funeral-your own (just kidding). More importantly, be respectful, apologize and don’t lie if you are not extremely good at it. The judge will probably not incarcerate and reinstate your bond if it was revoked. Just in case, bring your tooth brush.
