631.48 PENALTY MAY INCLUDE COSTS OF PROSECUTION.
In a criminal action, upon conviction of the defendant, the court may order as part of the
sentence that defendant shall pay the whole or any part of the disbursements of the prosecution,
including disbursements made to extradite a defendant. The court may order this payment in
addition to any other penalty authorized by law which it may impose. The payment of the
disbursements of prosecution may be enforced in the same manner as the sentence, or by
execution against property. When collected, the disbursements must be paid into the treasury
of the county of conviction, but this payment may not interfere with the payment of officers',
witnesses', or jurors' fees.
