Section 15-10-60 - Definition; procedure.

A "bench warrant" is one issued by a judge for the arrest of one accused of a crime by a grand jury. Every officer is bound to issue it within his jurisdiction, and every person so arrested must be committed to jail until bail is tendered. Any judicial officer or the sheriff of the county where the accusation was found may receive the bail, fix the amount of the bond and approve the sureties, unless it is a case that is bailable only before some particular officer.

(Code 1907, §7862; Code 1923, §5597; Code 1940, T. 15, §184.)
