In Martin v. Commonwealth, 2003 WL 22681798 (Ken. App. November 14, 2003) the defendant violated a non-appearance condition of his bond (contact with the minor victim of the crime).  The surety, the defendant's father, appealed forfeiture of 50% of the $20,000 cash bond.  The court held that forfeiture was justified but the amount excessive.
