or a person adjudged a material witness therein, or any other person  so
involved  therein  that  [he]  THE  PRINCIPAL may by law be compelled to
appear before a court for the purpose  of  having  such  court  exercise
control  over  [his]  THE PRINCIPAL'S person to secure [his] THE PRINCI-
PAL'S future attendance at the action or proceeding when  required,  and
who  in  fact  either  is  before the court for such purpose or has been
before it and been subjected to such control.
  2. "Release on own recognizance." A  court  releases  a  principal  on
[his]  THE  PRINCIPAL'S  own  recognizance when, having acquired control
over [his] THE PRINCIPAL'S person, it permits [him] THE PRINCIPAL to  be
at  liberty  during  the  pendency  of the criminal action or proceeding
involved upon condition that [he]  THE  PRINCIPAL  will  appear  thereat
whenever  [his]  THE  PRINCIPAL'S attendance may be required and will at
all times render [himself] THE PRINCIPAL  amenable  to  the  orders  and
processes of the court.
