If a defendant who is financially able refuses or neglects to pay a fine or costs or both, payment may be enforced by imprisonment until the same shall be satisfied, at the rate of $25 per day. If the defendant is without means to pay the fine or costs, the Municipal Judge may direct the total amount due to be entered upon the Court minutes and to be certified to the District Court, the county where the site of the municipal government is located, where it shall be entered upon the District Court judgment docket and shall have the full force and effect of a District Court judgment. Thereupon, the same remedies shall be available for the enforcement of the judgement as are available to any other judgment creditor.
