Joel H. Moseley, Sr., Murfreesboro, Tennessee, for the Appellant, Jenkins Bonding Company.

Attorneys 2:

Herbert H. Slatery III, Attorney General and Reporter; Sophia S. Lee, Senior Counsel; Glenn R. Funk, District Attorney General; and Tammy H. Meade, Assistant District Attorney General, for the Appellee, State of Tennessee.

Judge(s): MCMULLEN

The Appellant, Jenkins Bonding Company, appeals the Davidson County Criminal Court?s judgment of final forfeiture of bail bonds. The Appellant argues that its obligation to secure the appearance of a defendant had been released; therefore, the trial court erred in issuing a judgment of final forfeiture. Upon review, we reverse the judgment of the trial court.
