How would not paying back bail bonds effect you?

Question Details:

My uncle was arrested for possession and since it was his second arrest the bail was set at $3000. My grandmother contacted a local bail bonds place and got him out. He has gone to all of his court appearances and has to go to some classes and do some community work. My grandmother on a fixed income is now stuck with $3000 bill to the bail bonds. She cannot afford to pay it. What will happen to her or my uncle at this point if they stop paying? Would this be treated as default on payment to a lending institution and a negative point on her credit or are there any criminal consequences?
