Ken Lammers, from CrimLaw, has hired a very able research assistant/law clerk. She wrote, and Ken posted, an excellent summary on failure to appear in Virginia. Although the memo focuses on state law, the consequences of an FTA in Virginia are similar to the consequences of an FTA in the three state whose law on this issue I know. Anyhow, you can please read the memo on failure to appear in Virginia.
BTW, Ken, this girl has skillz...a budding blogger?
