30-year-old Allen Rogers was issued a citation in May 2018 after police saw him run a stop sign at Chestnut and Hagan. When police ran his social security number, they found Rogers had a suspended license. Police explained that he couldn’t drive anymore, so he agreed to have someone with a valid license pick up his car, and he was issued a citation to appear in court in July. He failed to appear, and a capias was issued for his arrest. Later that month, he filed a motion to recall and reset to a September court date – for which he also failed to appear. He managed not to be picked up again for just over three years but was once again jailed on the charge in April of 2022 when he once again posted a bond and was released. He failed to appear for the subsequent August court date and was jailed on the outstanding warrant once again this week. He is now free on a $25,000 bond and scheduled to appear in court in June — for a charge that would have likely been dismissed had he simply gone to the first court date. Will he fail to appear next month? It’s a bet we’re willing to make.
