If she didn't, then the original debt collector had no business in having her arrested for the debt.

Was a subpoena issued? Ignoring a simple summons will not result in an arrest, a subpoena is a whole different story as I said above.

she had a court hearing because she was in debt..
she missed the court hearing knowing full well she could not pay that debt..
missing that court hearing warranted her arrest..
the government is very good at creating loop holes.. she was not arrested for owing money, she was arrested for missing the hearing this is how they can cheat the system legally.
or maybe not lol..

Yes. But the courts have decided on that matter several times. All she
had to do (not saying she did in this case) is refuse to sign for the
certified letter. The letter gets sent back to the creditor, or in this
case the evil collection agency, as "unclaimed and/or refused.
The courts see that and accepts the collection agency's claim that an attempt was made to contact her.
