Bail Jumping And Failure To Appear
If you are charged with a Class C offense, the maximum punishment is a fine, so your court appearance (or missing it) is punishable by a fine only as well. If you are charged with a Class B or Class A misdemeanor, and you do not show up for one of those court dates, the Bail Jumping and Failure to Appear Charge will be enhanced to Class A misdemeanor charge. The bail bond amounts for a Class A misdemeanor charge will be closer to $3,000. If it is a felony court appearance that you miss, you will be charged with a 3rd degree felony for failing to appear, and the bail bond amount will be closer to $10K.
