(a) Fines imposed by a military court may be paid to it or to an officer executing
its process. All such fines shall be payable at the time of approval of the sentence by the convening
authority. Any sum so deducted shall be turned into the military court which imposed the fine.
Any officer collecting a fine or penalty imposed by a military court upon an officer
or enlisted person shall pay it within 30 days to the judge advocate, who shall transmit
the same to the adjutant general. The adjutant general shall remit all fines and penalties so received to the state
treasurer in accordance with the provisions of K.S.A. 75-4215, and amendments thereto. Upon receipt of each such remittance, the state treasurer shall deposit the entire
amount in the state treasury to the credit of the state general fund.
(b) When the sentence of a court-martial adjudges a fine against any person and such
fine has not been fully paid within 10 days after it is due and payable, the president
of the military court or the summary court officer shall issue a warrant of commitment
directed to the sheriff or chief law enforcement officer of the county in which the
court-martial was held or where the offense was committed, directing such sheriff
or law enforcement officer to arrest and confine the person until such fine is paid
or until one day shall have been served for each $1 of the fine which is not paid.
The form for order of commitment shall be prescribed by the adjutant general.
