The Act provides that chief magistrates may establish no contest cash bond schedules, allows persons arrested or accused of misdemeanor bad check violations to post a no contest cash bond, and deems failure to appear for trial to be a guilty plea and forfeiture of the bond, unless the court provides otherwise. When the court rejects the guilty plea and forfeiture, the Act instructs the court to issue a bench warrant for the defendant's arrest for subsequent default.
