first, i live in nj. ok my best friend recently got a new car. however his old car broke down in a parking lot and due to a lack of money to fix it he left it there until he could. he also took of the plates to transfer the registration and everything to the new car. well he got tickets for aboandoned vehicle, no plates, etc. for whatever reason, he missed the court date and now believes there is a warrant out for him and that he might go to jail. i told him that its only a bench warrant, and the biggest problem he may have is a bigger fine since everything he did was not really criminal. i think thats what is happening but could someone please help me clarify.
