ANDREW ROBERTS CRIMINAL, DUI AND TRAFFIC TICKET DEFENSE ATTORNEY- 39 YEARS EXPERIENCE
Yes, it is possible. Your concern is valid. Did you agree to a Cruz waiver at time of taking your plea when your sentencing was set for a later date? If so, the judge indeed can sentence you up to the maximum since you did not appear for sentencing.
