Criminal Law: Bond Forfeiture – Jurisdiction

Where a surety appealed a trial court’s order refusing to set aside a bond forfeiture order against her, the appeal is dismissed because the denial of her motion to set aside was the only order to which the notice of appeal related and the denial was not a judgment, and appeal by the other surety is remanded with directions to vacate because the court lacked jurisdiction to enter an amended judgment of bond forfeiture.
Dismissed; remanded.
