Cases - New Mexico
In State v. Valles, 99 P.3d 679 (N.M. App. 2004) the bond, on a form mandated by court rules, provided that it remained in force until discharged by the court.  The applicable statute, however, stated that the bond was null and void upon a finding that the accused person was guilty.  The defendant pled guilty but did not appear for sentencing.  The issue was whether the statute or the bond itself controlled.  The court held that the statute controlled and reversed a judgment forfeiting the bond.
