Upon arrest of the defendant by the sheriff or upon the defendant's delivery to the
sheriff by the bail or upon the defendant's own surrender, the bail must be exonerated
if the arrest, delivery, or surrender take place before the expiration of 10 days
after judgment. However, if the arrest, delivery, or surrender is not made within 10 days after
the judgment, the bail must be finally charged on their undertaking and be bound to
pay the amount of the judgment within 10 days after the judgment.
