A WOMAN whose arrest was ordered after she failed to attend Huddersfield Magistrates Court, appeared yesterday.
A warrant without bail had been ordered to be served on 23-year-old Amy Kennedy earlier this week.
The homecare assistant, of Woodroyd in Golcar, had previously failed to appear before the court, charged with road traffic offences.
These were: using a vehicle on Scar Lane on April 24 without third party insurance, failing to produce a certificate of insurance and an exam test certificate to police.
Magistrates convicted Kennedy in her absence on September 1 and ordered her to attend court again to disqualify her from driving.
She was bailed to attend court but magistrates ordered her arrest when she failed to turn up again on October 11.
Kennedy said she had believed that she did not have to attend the hearings and her case had been dealt with as she had paid a fine.
She only discovered that a warrant had been issued for her arrest when she read about it in the Examiner.
Kennedy then handed herself into custody.
She has requested an exceptional hardship hearing in a bid to persuade the court not to ban her from driving,
Kennedy said she needed a vehicle for her work as a homecare assistant for the elderly.
The hearing will take place on November 1.
She was granted bail by a district judge.
