You will have to be at every court date you are asked and if you are out on bail, it is absolutely imperative you consider the best solution for yourself. Flying back and forth for all court appointments will be costly and time consuming. So is the need to book a hotel or motel each time you’re out there.
But, doing so is absolutely necessary if you want to remain out on bail. Of course, you can always still bail out of jail and remain in the state for the whole duration. You won’t be paying for airfares, but you also won’t get to be in the supportive, comfortable place you call home.
