Failure to Comply
Los Angeles Bench Warrant Attorneys
When you have committed a criminal offense and have been convicted of that offense, the court will delineate certain terms you must meet as part of your sentencing. If you fail to meet the terms that the court has required of you, then you may be charged with a failure to comply. You are now in "contempt of court."
An example of this might be a person convicted of a crime of domestic violence. The person may be ordered by the court to take anger management classes and given a set date by which these classes must be completed. If the convicted person ignores this court order and fails to attend the mandated classes or cannot prove that he did so, then he may be charged with a failure to comply by the judge. He is now in contempt of court.
The consequences for a failure to comply may be further legal action and penalties. The person may be required to pay additional fines, be sent to jail, or have his current sentence extended.
