Care and support of civil prisoner
Correction (COR) CHAPTER 43, ARTICLE 22
§ 614. Care and support of civil prisoner. A person arrested, by
virtue of an order of arrest, in an action or special proceeding brought
in a court of record; or of an execution issued upon a judgment rendered
in a court of record; or surrendered in exoneration of his bail; must be
safely kept in custody, in the manner prescribed by law, and, except as
herein otherwise provided, at his own expense, until he satisfies the
judgment rendered against him, or is discharged according to law. In any
county, if a prisoner, actually confined in jail, makes oath before the
sheriff, jailer, or deputy-jailer, that he is unable to support himself
during his imprisonment, his support is a county charge.
