SECTION 799
Restrictions upon power to remit
Judiciary (JUD) CHAPTER 30, ARTICLE 20-A
§ 799. Restrictions upon power to remit. Section seven hundred and
ninety-eight does not authorize a county court to remit any part of a
fine exceeding two hundred and fifty dollars imposed by the supreme
court upon conviction for a criminal offense; or a fine to any amount
imposed by a court upon an officer or other person, for an actual
contempt of court, or for disobedience to its process, or other mandate;
or to remit or discharge a recognizance taken in its county for the
appearance of a person in another county. In the latter case, the power
of remitting or discharging the recognizance is vested in the county
court of the county, in which the person is bound to appear.
