(from Ch. 110, par. 10-106)
Grant of relief - Penalty.
Unless it shall appear from the
complaint itself, or from the
documents thereto annexed, that the party can neither be discharged,
admitted to bail nor otherwise relieved, the court shall
forthwith award relief by habeas corpus. Any judge empowered to grant relief
by habeas corpus who shall corruptly refuse to grant
the relief when legally applied for in a case where it may lawfully be granted, or
who shall for the purpose of oppression unreasonably delay the granting
of such relief shall, for every such offense, forfeit to the prisoner or
party affected a sum not exceeding $1,000.
