First plead not guilty when there's video evidence showing your assault of the plaintiff.
Second no-show the date to set a trial.
*BZZZT!!!!* Failbitch move, Jonnyboy! That's the kind of move a guilty defendant makes when they've decided to do a runner because they know they have no chance to succeed.
The next step IS a granted warrant for the arrest and stowage in jail of a massive pain in the ass who dosen't have a clue how or where to avoid the po-po, who know where he lives perfectly well since he calls them there all the time, and said po-po are plenty motivated to find him once they hear he's gotten a bench warrant set out on his fat ass.
After that I can only speculate, but I am speculating so hard I'm getting a goddamn blue-steel boner right now.
The chance of an actual custodial sentence just increased dramatically.
Uh yeah, I hate to ruin the excitement for you guys but the police don't go out looking for bench warrants, at least not in the US and I doubt it's that different in Canada. It'll take another run in with the police running his name for that to pop up, but it's a guaranteed arrest and stay in jail until he sees the judge when that happens. What happens after that is up for grabs still but don't get ahead of yourselves with visions of these police pulling up with sirens blaring.I don't want to get too excited, but the idea that Jon might get picked up on an arrest warrant is amazing.
