589.10 ENFORCING THE WRIT.
If the person upon whom the writ is served refuses or neglects to produce the person
named in it and make a full return of the writ at the time and place required and does not give
sufficient excuse, the judge before whom the writ is returnable, upon proof of service of it, shall
immediately issue an attachment against the person, directed to the sheriff or coroner of any
county. The attachment must direct the sheriff or coroner to apprehend the person upon whom the
writ is served as soon as possible and bring that person before the judge before whom the writ is
returnable. The judge before whom the writ is returnable shall commit the person apprehended
under the attachment to the county jail until that person makes the return and complies with
all other orders made by the judge.
