Liberty Bonding v. State

In Liberty Bonding v. State, 270 Ark. 434, 604 S.W.2d 956 (1980), where the language in the bond at issue is virtually identical to that in the instant case, the supreme court found that the trial court erred in ordering a bond forfeiture where the trial court allowed the defendant to remain at liberty after sentencing, solely upon the representation by the defendant's attorney that the bonding company would agree to remain on bond. In short, the trial court in Liberty Bonding erred because it held the bonding company liable for an obligation to which it had not consented.
