§62-5-4. Fees of officer executing process or rendering service
out of county in felony cases.
A sheriff or other officer, for traveling out of his county to
execute process in a case of felony and doing any act in the
service thereof for which no other compensation is provided, shall
receive therefor, out of the treasury, such compensation as the
court from which the process issued may certify to be reasonable.
When in such case an officer renders any service for which no
specific compensation is provided, the court in which the case may
be, may allow therefore what it deems reasonable, and such
allowance shall be payable out of the treasury.
