§62-4-8. Duties of prosecuting attorney in relation to fines.
It shall be the duty of the prosecuting attorney of every
county to institute and prosecute in the circuit court, or other
court having jurisdiction thereof, as the case may be, proper
proceedings for the recovery of all fines imposed by law, where the
cases are cognizable in such court. He shall superintend the
issuing of executions on judgments for fines rendered by such
courts, and cause all delinquencies in relation to the service or
return of such executions to be duly prosecuted. If judgment be
rendered by the circuit or other court for a fine, whether with or
without imprisonment, a docket fee of ten dollars for the
prosecuting attorney's services, but payable into the county
treasury, shall be taxed in the costs against the offender.
