California Court of Appeal

People v. Accredited Surety and Casualty Co., 150209

Held that a bail bond company did not have to forfeit $50,000 bail because the defendant had appeared in court. The company insisted that bail was exonerated by operation of law upon the defendant's appearance in court, even though the judge had continued the case to a later session to secure the bail bondsman's attendance, by which time the defendant was nowhere to be found. Agreeing with the company and reversing the trial court, the California First Appellate District held that the forfeiture must be vacated.
