You must follow all of the conditions of release ordered by the Judge. If you violate any one of those conditions, the Judge could change your conditions, or revoke those conditions and incarcerate you until your case is resolved. You must show up for all of your court dates. If you do not report for any court date, a bench warrant will be issued for your arrest and you could receive a new charge simply for failing to appear. If you do miss a court appearance, contact your lawyer and call Pre-Trial Release Services at 509-574-1872 as soon as possible in order to resolve the bench warrant.
While your case is pending, your Pre-Trial Services Officer can help you in a variety of ways. They can help you voluntarily surrender on an outstanding bench warrant, obtain drug treatment, mental health treatment, or other social services (such as temporary shelter, government-issued identification, job listings, GED, etc.). If you feel you need any of these services, talk to your Pre-Trial Services Officer . Be sure to stay in touch with your Pre-Trial Services Officer, especially if you change your address or phone number.
