I was arrested earlier this year and have already had one trial setting. The prosecution was not ready so they reset the trial for sometime early this coming year. I was involved in an accident, it is why I was arrested at all (single car). My blood level was above .15, and I look pretty bad on camera. I just want to know what happens if the arresting officer does not show up to my second trial setting, will they be able to still convict me? I already have a Lawyer but I just want to know from other people's perspective.

I am 20 years old and received a dui for driving with a detectable amount of alcohol in my system (was under .08), I got my license suspended, but didn't receive notice of the suspension till after my suspension period had passed, and so i unknowingly was driving with a suspended license and even received a speeding ticket during this time and was not made aware that my license was suspended.
