RCr 4.50 Surrender of defendant; exoneration
(1) At any time before forfeiture, any surety or any party acting at the request of the surety, may move the court before which the defendant has been held to answer, for exoneration from liability on the bond or recognizance and that any money or bonds that have been deposited as bail be returned to the surety. The motion must be in writing and served upon all parties.
(2) After a hearing upon the motion, for good cause shown, the court may exonerate the surety or sureties, subject to the interests of any valid lienholder, from liability on the bond or recognizance.
