Section 793 Return of warrant

Judiciary (JUD)

The sheriff must return the warrant, with his proceeding thereupon, at the term of the court; or, where the fine was imposed, in any county except New York, by the supreme court, or the county court at the term of the county court; held next after the expiration of sixty days from the receipt thereof. If he fails to do so, the district attorney must take the same proceedings to compel a return, as may be taken by a judgment creditor, where a sheriff omits to return an execution, issued out of the supreme court.
