Essentially, I failed to appear in court for an OUI in Michigan in 2005. The court forfeited my bail bond and issued an "judgment after bond forfeiture." I never pled guilty or no contest nor was I found guilty by a jury. My question is, is there a statute that permits the judge to make a finding of guilt due to my non-appearance? If so, can you provide the statute number? Many thanks.I agree with Edward that that happened--I failed to appear and a warrant was issued for my arrest. My question is, does Michigan law consider my failure to appear and subsequent "judgment after bond forfeiture" an OUI conviction?
