(20 ILCS 1815/73)
(from Ch. 129, par. 301)
Whenever the sentence of a general court martial includes a fine,
and such sentence has been approved by the Governor, The Adjutant General
shall issue a warrant for the collection of such fine, directed to the
sheriff of the county wherein the person against whom such
fine is imposed resides, and such officer shall collect such fine in the
same manner as he is authorized to collect debts in civil suits, and he
shall make return within twenty days after receiving the warrant, to The
Adjutant General. In default of the payment of the fine, or if the officer
executing the warrant certifies that there is no property of the defendant
out of which to satisfy the warrant, The Adjutant General shall issue a
warrant of commitment directed to such sheriff, who shall
forthwith take the defendant to the county jail and make return thereof to
The Adjutant General.
The warrant of commitment for such default shall specify the amount in
dollars of the fine, and the defendant shall remain in the custody of the
keeper or warden of the county jail the same number of days as there are
dollars of the fine unpaid.
Warrants for the collection of fines imposed by summary courts, and
warrants for commitment for non-payment thereof, shall be issued by the
officer appointing the summary court.
