Bail in habeas corpus proceedings.
Any Supreme Court justice, judge of the Court of Appeals or judge, before whom any person who has been committed on a criminal charge before conviction is brought on a writ of habeas corpus, if that person is bailable, may take a recognizance from that person, as in other cases, and shall file the same in the proper court without delay. In no case where the applicant for a writ of habeas corpus has been admitted to bail and failed to appear before the Supreme Court justice, the judge of the Court of Appeals, the judge or presiding judge of the court wherein the bail was fixed may the proceedings for a writ of habeas corpus be dismissed, except upon good cause shown. Upon the failure of that person to appear, the justice, judge of the Court of Appeals, district judge or presiding judge shall cause a bench warrant to be issued and that person arrested and brought before the justice, judge or court as upon contempt.
