People v. North River Insurance Co., 045228

Reversed and trial court directed to vacate forfeiture. Defendant provided a bail bond for Chirinos who failed to appear for his court date and the trial court ordered the bond forfeited. Defendant argued that the trial court lost its jurisdiction by failing to properly declare a forfeiture pursuant to Penal Code section 1305 the first time Chirinos failed to appear, but waited until the second time he did not appear. Appeals court agreed with Defendant.
