Citation: 150 Cal.App.4th 11

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.
