7-3-503. Compliance with recognizance order; failure to give recognizance
(a) If a person ordered to give recognizance complies with the order he shall be discharged and the recognizance returned to him.
(b) If a person ordered to give recognizance and surety refuses or neglects to do so, the judge may order the person to show cause why he should not be committed to jail. If the judge finds that the person’s default is willful or is due to his failure to make a good faith effort to obtain the surety required, the judge may order him committed to jail until the surety, or a specified part thereof is given, provided that such commitment shall not exceed six (6) months.
