Do I need to go to this setting? Will it look good for me to go? Will it show the judge that I’m taking this seriously?
You only need to go if you don't have an attorney. This is just an administrative setting. It isn’t even in a courtroom. The only person you would see is a receptionist for court administration. In fact, nowadays they are texting defendants with a new court date a few days before the court date on the bond.
