What should I do if I accidentally didn't show up for a DUI fingerprint order?

I just realized I had to go to court today to get my fingerprints taken for a dui charge. I completely forgot about it and I am nervous as to what the consequences might me. Today is Friday and they are already closed, and won't be open until Monday. Should I call Monday or just show up? Is this a really serious matter?

You should have your lawyer contact the court so that you can submit to the fingerprint and mug shots. Call Legal Aid if you did not have a lawyer. This was not an "accident", it was a result of you being irresponsible and immature. Get a diary and put your important appointments in it and look at it every day like a responsible person would.

Get the case called into the court room and let the Judge know what happened. If you did that today it should have been taken care. If not do it tomorrow morning.

You should show up as soon as possible to keep it from becoming a serious matter. Generally, the fingerprinting is done by law enforcement. You could call law enforcement to find out if they could handle your booking. They are open 24-7.
