125C.030. Imprisonment for contempt for failure to comply with judgment ordering additional visit

1. A custodial parent who fails to comply with a judgment ordering an additional visit may, upon a judgment of the court, be found guilty of contempt and sentenced to imprisonment in the county jail. During the period of imprisonment, the court may authorize his temporary release from confinement during such hours and under such supervision as the court determines are necessary to allow him to go to and return from his place of employment.

2. A custodial parent imprisoned for contempt pursuant to subsection 1 must be released from the jail if the court has reasonable cause to believe that he will comply with the order for the additional visit.
