(a) A sentence of confinement adjudged by a court-martial, whether or not the sentence
includes discharge or dismissal, and whether or not the discharge or dismissal has
been executed, may be carried into execution by confinement in any place authorized
by this article. Persons so confined are subject to the same discipline and treatment as persons
regularly confined or committed to that place of confinement.
(b) The omission of “hard labor” as a sentence authorized under this article does
not deprive the state confinement facility from employing it, if it otherwise is within
the authority of that facility to do so.
(c) No place of confinement may require payment of any fee or charge for so receiving
or confining a person except as otherwise provided by law.
