If I was released on my own, recognizance without bail, could I be charged with bail jumping when I didn't go back to court? 1 Answers as of August 17, 2017

I was charged with second degree burglary for stealing a bottle of wine. I was arrested and booked into the county jail and next day I appeared before the judge. I was released on my own told me my court date and to come back to court. There was no bail involved in my case whatsoever but was told by a bondsman that I now have another warrant with this case for bail jumping, along the original charge of the burglary 2 for trespassing in a food store and stealing the bottle of wine.

Failure to appear is why a warrant was issued.
