the municipal court shall prepare and deliver to the chief of police a copy of the
entry of judgment, duly certified by such judge or clerk, which shall be sufficient
authority to such chief of police to execute the sentence and confine the accused
person to jail for the time specified, or until further order of the court.
When a fine is levied as punishment, the municipal judge or clerk of the municipal
