§62-4-2. Allowance to informer or person prosecuting.
Although a law may allow an informer or person prosecuting to
have part of a fine, the whole thereof shall go to the state for
the support of the free schools, unless the name of such informer
or prosecutor be indorsed on or written at the foot of the
presentment at the time it is made, or of the indictment before it
is presented to the grand jury, or of the writ issued in the
action, or the warrant, or the notice of the motion, before the
service of such writ, warrant or notice.
