The first thing that you need to do is to contact a criminal defense attorney. Aside from the underlying charge of DUI, you now have to deal with the warrant that was undoubtedly issued when you failed to appear in court. You really need to consult with legal counsel before heading to court. That having been said, you will then need to appear before a judge. Whether jailtime will be involved, your attorney can best advise you of.

The attorney providing the answer was not serving as the attorney for the person submitting the question or in any attorney-client relationship with such person. Laws may vary from state to state, and sometimes change. Tiny variations in the facts, or a fact not set forth in a question, often can change a legal outcome or an attorney's conclusion. Although AttorneyPages.com has verified the attorney was admitted to practice law in at least one jurisdiction, he or she may not be authorized to practice law in the jurisdiction referred to in the question, nor is he or she necessarily experienced in the area of the law involved. Unlike the information in the Answer(s) above, upon which you should NOT rely, for personal advice you can rely upon we suggest you retain an attorney to represent you.
