Failing to appear for court is not an option. Failure to appear will cause the court to issue a bench warrant for your arrest for failure to appear; it could also result in a new charge, a FELONY, for bail jumping. That would make a bad situation even worse. Basically, you have two choices - pay your own way to Florida, or the state will pay your way but the travel arrangements will be much worse. You might, emphasis on might, be able to work out a deal wherein you don't have to physically appear, but you will need an attorney in Florida to do this. A battery is much more serious than a traffic ticket.

Then don't break the law! the best option you have is to call the courts, ask if you can plea guilty over the phone and pay a fine. it's very unlikely they'll let you do this as it's battery rather then a speeding ticket or something. If you skip out on the court date you'll get a warrant for your arrest and next time you get pulled over or seen by an officer you'll get arrested.. and if your in a vehicle or something you'll get your car towed which is a nice hefty fine.
