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.
