Appeals In Criminal Cases.
1892, ch. 506.
77. The parties to criminal proceedings shall be entitled to
bills of exceptions, in the same manner as in civil proceedings,
and appeals from judgments in criminal cases may be taken in
the same manner as in civil cases; but no appeal in a criminal
case shall stay execution of sentence unless the counsel for the
accused shall make oath that the appeal is not taken for delay;
and such appeal shall be heard at the earliest convenient day
after the same shall have been transmitted to the Court of
Appeals; and the accused upon taking such appeal shall, in all
cases not punishable by death, or imprisonment in the peniten-
tiary, be entitled to remain on bail, and in other cases not capital,
the court from which the appeal is taken shall have the discre-
tionary power to admit to bail; provided that nothing herein con-
tained shall be construed to prohibit the court from requiring
additional or greater bail, pending an appeal, than the accused
may already have given before conviction.
