§62-5-7. Execution for expenses incident to prosecution.
In every criminal case the clerk of the court in which the
accused is convicted shall, as soon as may be, make up a statement
of all the expenses incident to the prosecution, including such as
are certified to him by a justice under the preceding section; and
execution for the amount of such expenses shall be issued and
proceeded with, and article four of this chapter shall apply
thereto in like manner as if, on the day of completing such
statement, there was judgment in such court in favor of the state
against the accused for such amount as a fine.
