Judicial District on a nonfelony case shall be paid to Hennepin County to be applied to the
support of the law library of the county. The receipt of the county treasurer to the court
administrator shall be a sufficient voucher. When the sums so forfeited, minus refunds,
during any calendar year equal $2,500, all sums in excess of that amount shall be paid
to the municipality or subdivision of government in which the violation occurred. The
payments shall be made periodically but not prior to six months from the date of the order
for forfeiture. During that six-month period, but not thereafter, any judge may set aside
the forfeiture order upon proper showing of cause. No obligation to pay sums so ordered
forfeited exists unless the forfeiture is not set aside within the six-month period. For the
purpose of determining when the $2,500 shall have accrued to the county law library, the
final forfeiture shall be deemed to occur at the end of the six-month period.
