I was served a summons to appear in court for a charge of theft. UTAG whatever that is. I accidentally forgot to pay for $15 petrol, filled up then drove off ðŸ¤¦â€â™€ï¸ Two weeks later the police showed up with a summons. I went directly to the servo and explained to them how it was an honest mistake and paid the money owing. They were very understanding and said they would withdraw the charge. I thought that would be the end of it and didnâ€™t appear in court. Today I received a letter from the court saying I was found guilty!
My question is did I still have to appear in court and would there be a warrant for my arrest.
