When a judgment, other than of death, has been pronounced, a certified copy of the entry thereof upon the minutes must be forthwith furnished to the officer whose duty it is to execute the judgment, and no other warrant or authority is necessary to justify or require its execution.

1214. If the judgment is for a fine with or without imprisonment, execution may be issued thereon as on a judgment in a civil action. 1905–698.

1215. If the judgment is for imprisonment, or a fine and imprisonment until it be paid, the defendant must forthwith be committed to the custody of the proper officer and by him detained until the judgment is complied with. Where, however, the court has suspended sentence, or where, after imposing sentence, the court has suspended the execution thereof and placed the defendant on probation, as provided in section twelve hundred and three of the Penal Code, the defendant, if over the age of sixteen years, must forthwith be placed under the care and supervision of the probation officer of the court committing him, until the expiration of the period of probation and the compliance with the terms and conditions of the sentence, or of the suspension thereof. Where, however, the probation been terminated as provided in section twelve hundred and three of the Penal Code, and the suspension of the sentence, or the execution revoked, and the judgment pronounced, the defendant must forthwith be committed to the custody of the proper officer and be detained until the judgment be complied with. 1903–35.

1216. If the judgment is for imprisonment in the state prison, the sheriff of the county must, upon receipt of a certified copy thereof, take and deliver the defendant to the warden of the state prison. He must also deliver to the warden the certified copy of the judgment, and take from the warden a receipt for the defendant.

1217. When judgment of death is rendered, a warrant, signed by the judge, and attested by the clerk, under the seal of the court, must be drawn and delivered to the sheriff. It must state the conviction and judgment, and appoint a day on which the judgment is to be executed, which must not be less than sixty nor more than ninety days from the time of judgment, and must direct the sheriff to deliver the defendant, within ten days from the time of judgment, to the warden of one of the state prisons of this state, for execution, such prison to be designated in the warrant. 1891–272.

1220. No judge, court, or officer, other than the governor, can suspend the execution of a judgment of death, except the warden of the state prison to whom he is delivered for execution, as provided in the six succeeding sections, unless an appeal is taken. 1891–273.

1221. If, after his delivery to the warden for execution, there is good reason to believe that a defendant, under judgment of death, has become insane, the warden must call such fact to the attention of the district attorney of the county in which the prison is situated, whose duty it is to immediately file in the superior court of such county a petition, stating the conviction and judgment, and the fact that the defendant is believed to be insane, and asks ing that the question of his sanity be inquired into. Thereupon the court must at once cause to be summoned and impaneled, from the regular jury-list of the county, a jury of twelve persons to hear such inquiry. 1905—698.

1222. The district attorney must attend the hearing, and may produce witnesses before the jury, for which purpose he may issue process in the same manner as for witnesses to attend before a grand jury, and disobedience thereto may be punished in like manner as disobedience to process issued by the court. 1905—699.

1223. The verdict of the jury must be entered upon the minutes, and thereupon the court must make and cause to be entered an order reciting the fact of such inquiry and the result thereof, and when it is found that the defendant is insane, the order must direct that he be taken to one of the state hospitals for the insane, and there kept in safe confinement until his reason is restored. 1905-699.

1224. If it is found that the defendant is sane, the warden must proceed to execute the judgment as specified in the warrant; if it is found that the defendant is insane, the warden must suspend the execution, and transmit a certified copy of the order mentioned in the last section to the governor, and deliver the defendant, together with a certified copy of such order, to the medical superintendent of the hospital named in such order. When the defendant recovers his reason, the superintendent of such hospital must certify that fact to the governor, who must thereupon issue to the warden his warrant, appointing a day for the execution of the judgment. 1905-699.

1225. If there is good reason to believe that a female against whom a judgment of death is rendered is pregnant, such proceedings must be had as are provided in section twelve hundred
