What to do about a probation that I failed to complete?

I got a ticket a couple years ago but I didn’t finished my community service hours or go back to court. What can I do to pay this ticket? Is there a chance that I can go to juvi?

If you are still a minor, better act on it now. Contact legal counsel and have him or her find out the status of your ticket, whether a bench warrant has been issued and whether anything else has been issued regarding your community service. You may now be facing the possibility that the failure to complete community service of a ticket is worse than the community service for the ticket, especially if you have a warrant issued for your arest. Better you find out now and have the possibility to have this off of your record or your record sealed and eligible for expungement at some point than to become an adult (over 18) and face worse consequences for those same actions committed while a minor.
