(c) The provisions of this section (b) shall not apply where a person arrested has a prior conviction, except a misdemeanor traffic offense, unless a judge of a Court of record, except Probate Court, by express order entered of record, orders the return.
(d) Any person whose fingerprints may be taken, as authorized by this section and who refuses to allow or resists the taking of his fingerprints, after such person has been advised that his refusal constitutes a misdemeanor shall be guilty of a misdemeanor.
