If We Can't Bail Them Out, NO ONE CAN!

What does it mean if a Defendant's bond is forfeited, also referred to as estreated and what does this mean?

It means that the defendant had failed to appear to court and the Judge has ordered the bond forfeited. Means that the bail company then has 180 days to locate the defendant and get him back into court, into jail, or the Judge will order a Judgment against the Bail Company to replace the bond with the full amount that was posted.
