A: You should be able to have an attorney file a motion to have the detainer lifted or dismiss the failure to appear. For instance, in your case, since she was already in prison when the failure to appear was issued then her failure to appear was not willful. If she has an open case, then her attorney on that case could file the motion to dismiss the failure to appear, ask the judge to sign a transport order, and set the case for trial. This would allow your daughter to resolve the case now and not have to wait until the end of her prison sentence.
