A: An I-Bond is a document in which you promise to appear in court. It is not a plea or conviction. You should contact an attorney to discuss your case in detail.

A: No, they are not considered the same. If you are issued a ticket, the officer will have you sign it instead of taking you into custody and processing you. You need to hire an attorney to assist you with any charges you are facing.
