My son missed a court date and an arrest warrant has been issued, what should he do?

Question Details:

He was arrested for a misdemeanor "A" for neglecting a child (2). He has been seeing a caseworker and has been doing UA testing. He also has been to parent counseling at his apartment. He is now in IL residing at his girlfriend's parent's house. She also has the same warrant for her as they are the parents. He missed because he just got a job. I am in the process of getting both children as a guardian. He is afraid if he turns himself in, they sill just jail him until his next court date.
