Question: Can I avoid jail time if I have a bench warrant out of Van Nuys Court for a failure to appear?

Answer: It is possible, but it depends on circumstances. What is the initial charge, and what is the reason for the failure to appear? Also, how long ago was the initial court date that you did not appear on? Call me to discuss in more detail.
