AS 26.05.330. Expenses of Military Courts.

(a) The expense incident to and connected with the holding of military courts in this state under this chapter shall be paid out of the state general fund under orders and regulations issued or adopted by the adjutant general with the approval of the governor.

(b) Whenever the sentence of a general court-martial includes a fine, and the sentence is approved by proper authority, the adjutant general shall issue an execution warrant for the collection of the fine directed to any peace officer of the judicial district in which the person against whom the fine is imposed resides. The officer shall proceed in the same manner as if authorized in a civil suit, and the officer shall make return to the adjutant general within 20 days after receiving the execution warrant. In default of the payment of the fine, or if the officer carrying out the execution certifies that there is no property of the defendant out of which to satisfy the fine, the adjutant general shall issue a commitment for placement of the delinquent in a specified guardhouse or jail. The warrant of commitment for the default shall specify the amount in dollars of the fine or unpaid balance of it and the delinquent shall remain in the custody of the keeper or warden of the guardhouse or jail one day for each $5 of the unpaid sum.

(c) Whenever the sentence of a general court-martial includes imprisonment in a jail or guardhouse, and the sentence is approved by proper authority, the adjutant general shall issue an appropriate commitment, directed to the authority in charge of the jail or guardhouse charged with carrying out the sentence and the authority shall make return of the commitment to the adjutant general. If the sentence includes imprisonment in a military guardhouse, the sentence shall be executed by order of or arrangement made by the officer approving the sentence.

(d) All fines levied and collected under this section shall be paid to the Department of Revenue for deposit in the state general fund.

(e) For each day of duty as a member of a general court-martial, or as a witness under summons from the president or judge advocate of the court, officers and enlisted persons shall be paid as provided in AS 26.05.260(b).

(f) The presiding officer, or recorder of a military board appointed to conduct an investigation or survey, or an officer detailed for that purpose may administer oaths to any witness attending to testify in the investigation.

(g) All expenses incident to conduct of military boards shall be paid for upon proper vouchers drawn against the state general fund.

(h) If a member of the National Guard or Naval Militia is prosecuted by civil or criminal action for an act the member performed or committed or an act the member caused, ordered or directed to be done or performed in furtherance of and while in the performance of the member's military duty, the expenses of the defense of the action, civil or criminal, including attorney fees, witness fees for the defense, defendant's court costs and all costs for transcripts of records and abstracts on appeal by the defense, shall be paid out of the state general fund.
