SEC. 99-23-7. Appeal to circuit court and proceedings therein.
Any person aggrieved by a requirement to give security to keep the peace may, at any time while such requirement is in force, appeal to the circuit court, on his application to the justice of the peace and giving bonds as required, with the further condition in the bond that the appellant shall pay all costs, in case it shall be adjudged against him in the circuit court; and thereupon all the papers in the case shall be returned by the justice of the peace to the office of the clerk of the circuit court, and said court shall examine the case anew, and either approve the bond the party gave or discharge him therefrom, or require him to enter a new one to keep the peace, in such sum and for such time not exceeding twelve months, as the court may prescribe, which judgment shall be enforced by committing the party to jail as in other cases of failure to give bail when required, from which he shall be delivered only by giving the required bail, and paying costs and jail fees. But such appeal shall not supersede the judgment requiring a bond to keep the peace, until such judgment shall be reversed by the circuit court.
