A: If you paid a bail forfeiture, that generally means you've admitted guilt and the case is resolved, at least criminally. However, the fact that you received another letter suggests there may still be an issue that needs to be addressed. It would not be advisable to ignore the letter; instead, you should contact the court to clarify the situation and ensure that your case is indeed closed.
