Issue of warrant when offense triable in another county.
Issue of warrant when offense triable in another county.—
When a complaint before a trial court judge charges the commission of an offense that is punishable by death or life imprisonment and is triable in another county of the state, but it appears that the person against whom the complaint is made is in the county where the complaint is made, the same proceedings for issuing a warrant shall be used as prescribed in this chapter, except that the warrant shall require the person against whom the complaint is made to be taken before a designated trial court judge of the county in which the offense is triable.
If the person arrested has a right to bail, the officer making the arrest shall inform the person of his or her right to bail and, on request, shall take the person before a trial court judge or other official having authority to admit to bail in the county in which the arrest is made. The official shall admit the person to bail for his or her appearance before the trial court judge designated in the warrant.
If the person arrested does not have a right to bail or, when informed of his or her right to bail, does not furnish bail immediately, he or she shall be taken before the trial court judge designated in the warrant.
