In felony cases in which the defendant is convicted, the fees of the various magistrates and their officers, the witness fees, and interpreter's fees shall be inserted in the judgment of conviction and, when collected shall be disbursed by the clerk of the court of common pleas to the persons entitled thereto. In minor state cases, which have come to the court of common pleas through such magistrate's courts, the fees enumerated by this section shall be inserted in the judgment of conviction and, when collected shall be disbursed by the clerk to the persons entitled thereto. In both felonies and minor state cases, such clerk shall pay the witness and interpreter's fees into the county treasury, monthly.
If the defendant is indigent, the interpreter's fees shall not be inserted in the judgment of conviction, and the county shall pay the interpreter's fees.
In all cases in which recognizances are taken, forfeited, and collected, the amount recovered shall be paid into the county treasury, and if no conviction is had, such costs shall be paid by the county upon the allowance of the county auditor.
