Between 7 and 9 June 1945, Sertić was transferred from Zagreb to prison in Belgrade. He was tried for war crimes along 34 other officers of NDH. During his trial, Archbishop of Zagreb Aloysius Stepinac spoke in his defense saying that he "personally knew Sertić as a noble person, full of humanness, who always condemned injustice". On 22 September 1945, Sertić was found guilty and was sentenced to death. The exact date of Sertić's death is unknown; however, his friend and distant relative Zdenka Sertić who visited him during his imprisonment remarked in her diary that he was handed over to OZNA on 27 September and that it was being said that he was executed on the same day either in Banjica or in Jajinci. Croatian language biographical reference publication Tko je tko u NDH gives Sertić's date of death as unknown day of September 1945.
