Rule 9.1. The Defendant's Waiver of the Right to Be Present
Except for sentencing or as these rules otherwise provide, a defendant's voluntary absence waives the right to be present at any proceeding. The court may infer that a defendant's absence is voluntary if the defendant had actual notice of the date and time of the proceeding, notice of the right to be present, and notice that the proceeding would go forward in the defendant's absence.
