SECTION 706
Cost and expense of removed criminal trials
County (CNT) CHAPTER 11, ARTICLE 18
§ 706. Cost and expense of removed criminal trials. Whenever the trial
of an indictment has been transferred from the county in which the
indictment was found to some other county, the cost and expense of such
trial shall be a charge upon the county in which the indictment was
found. Whenever under the order of any court of competent jurisdiction,
the pleadings and issue in any prosecution for any crime or misdemeanor,
for which no indictment has been found, shall have been removed to any
other county in this state for trial therein, in consequence of any
inability to obtain an unprejudiced or impartial jury in the county in
which the venue was originally laid, the expenses of the trial of said
prosecution shall be a charge upon the county from which the same was
transferred. The cost and expense of trial of any prosecution, as shown
by the certificate of the presiding judge or justice, shall be paid by
the county from which the transfer of trial was made to the county
treasurer of the county in which the trial was had.
