If the person who has been charged with a misdemeanor but not convicted for the charged crime where there are no court ordered restrictions upon him or her, he or she can leave the state where the charges are pending for a weekend without being in violation of any court order.

In this country, one is presumed innocent until proven guilty. Good luck.
