United States prisoners
Correction (COR) CHAPTER 43, ARTICLE 22
§ 612. United States prisoners. 1. A sheriff must receive into his or
her jail and keep a prisoner, committed to the same, by virtue of civil
process issued by a court of record, instituted under the authority of
the United States, until he or she is discharged by the due course of
the laws of the United States, in the same manner as if he was committed
by virtue of a mandate in a civil action, issued from a court of the
state. A sheriff or jailer, to whose jail a civil prisoner is committed,
as prescribed herein, is answerable for his or her safe keeping in the
courts of the United States, according to the laws thereof.

2. The commissioner may enter into an agreement to provide for custody
by the department of persons who are being detained by virtue of an
order issued by a court of the United States. An agreement made under
this section shall require the United States to pay the cost of
treatment, maintenance and custody furnished by the department.
