SECTION 779
Prosecution of undertaking by attorney-general or district attorney
Judiciary (JUD) CHAPTER 30, ARTICLE 19
§ 779. Prosecution of undertaking by attorney-general or district
attorney. If no party is aggrieved by the misconduct of the accused, the
order must, and, in any case where the court thinks proper so to direct,
it may, direct the prosecution of the undertaking, by the
attorney-general, or by the district attorney of the county in which it
was given, in the name of the people. In an action, brought pursuant to
the order, the people are entitled to recover the entire sum, specified
in the undertaking. Out of the money collected, the court, which
directed the prosecution, must direct that the person, at whose instance
the warrant was issued, be paid such a sum as it thinks proper, to
satisfy the costs and expenses incurred by him, and to compensate him
for any loss or injury sustained by him, by reason of the misconduct.
The residue of the money must be paid into the treasury of the state.
