State v. Largent, 197 N.C.App. 614, 677 S.E.2d 514 (Jun. 16, 2009)

The trial court properly denied the surety’s motion to set aside a bond forfeiture under G.S. 15A-544.5(b)(7) (defendant incarcerated at the time of the failure to appear). The statute refers to a one continuous period of incarceration beginning at the time of the failure to appear and ending no earlier than 10 days after the date that the district attorney is notified of the incarceration. In this case, the period of incarceration was not continuous.
