I appreciate your quick response. I think I can narrow my question--does the State of Michigan consider a "judgment after bond forfeiture" a conviction?

Based on what limited information you provided, I cannot answer you any better. It sounds to me like the court entered a default judgment against your bond. It also sounds to me like you are still facing criminal charges for the original charges. Keep in mind you may also be charged with absconding on bond and be convicted of that. Call a local criminal defense attorney for help. Good Luck!
