Section 14-4-3Maintenance of record of convicts by Board of Corrections; report to board by probate judge.

A record shall also be kept in the office of the Board of Corrections, similar to that provided to be kept for state convicts, of all persons who are sentenced to hard labor for the county and who, under the provisions of this article, may be confided to its supervision; and the judge of probate, or agent of hard labor for the county, shall report to the board at such times as the board may prescribe, the name, age, sex and race of each person sentenced to hard labor, date of conviction, crime, term of sentence, additional term for costs, date of expiration of sentence and amount of costs. Any judge of probate failing or neglecting to make, or to have made by the agent of hard labor for his county, the reports required by law may be impeached as in other cases; and he, and the sureties on his official bond, shall be liable to any person for all damages sustained by reason of such failure.
