Apparently, I had a bench warrant issued from 4 yrs. ago that I was unaware of due to writing a nsf check. It was charged as a felony because of the amount but I posted the cash bail after 2 1/2 day spent in jail. I had to appear in court 3 days later & the judge asked confirmed with me how much bail I posted and asked if I wanted to forfeit the bail. When I said yes, he said case dismissed & I was told by the baliffs everything was over & I was free to go. But I'm confused about what that means for me? Does that mean I wasn't convicted of the felony charge? Will the felony, the warrant & the arrest still show on a criminal background check?? Please advise. The check was written as a deposit on a used car. The deal fell thru & I was told the check would be destroyed.
