Name: People v. Safety National Casualty Corporation
Case #: F050421
Court: CA Court of Appeal
District 5 DCA
Opinion Date: 03/27/2007

Under Penal Code section 1195 the surety’s obligations under the bond are extinguished upon pronouncement of sentence, with the section being self-executing. Here, when appellant was granted probation, bail was exonerated by operation of law and the trial court had no jurisdiction to later order forfeiture when defendant failed to appear to show proof of probation compliance.
