Your boyfriend will not be sentenced because he has not had his trial yet. He may have to post a new (and higher) bond in order to get released pending the new trial date. He will have a bond set at his hearing. If he is unable to post bond, he may have to stay in jail until his trial and sentencing.

If this is the first time your friend has missed a court date, and they promptly turn themselves in and explain (through their lawyer) that it was a simple mistake, courts are often forgiving and will allow things to go back to normal.

I agree with the previous answer. Of course, it varies by each judge and their practice. However, generally a first time missed court date usually can be handled by a request, either by motion or in person, to quash the warrant, provided there is a reasonable explanation for why he missed court (Mistaken date is usually enough) His attorney should know how best to handle it in that court. Of course, a second failure to appear would be taken more seriously, so checking the court date and keeping it on a prominent calendar is a good idea for the future.
It depends to some extent upon the nature of the offense and the type of hearing that was scheduled. District Court Judges will be less inclined to quash a warrant, while matters pending in County Court are more easily addressed.
