tion; and such expenses in connection with the pregnancy of the mother as the court may deem proper.
§ 128. Payment to trustee. The court may require the payment to be made to the mother, or to some person or corporation to be designated by the court as trustee, but if the child is or is likely to become a public charge on a county, city or town, the superintendent of the poor of that county or the overseer of the poor of that town shall be made the trustee. The payment shall be directed to be made to a trustee if the mother does not reside within the jurisdiction of the court. The trustee shall report to the court annually, or oftener, as directed by the court, the amounts received and paid over.
§ 129. Security; commitment; probation. 1. The court may require the father to give security by bond, with sufficient sureties approved by the court, for the payment of the order of filiation. In case the action has been instituted by the county superintendent of the poor or the overseer of the poor, the defendant shall also be required to give security that he will indemnify the county, city or town where the child was or may be born and every other county, city or town against any expense for the support and education of the child or for the support of its mother during her confinement and recovery, or that the sureties will do so. In default of such security, when required, the court may commit him to jail, or put him on probation. At any time within one year he may be discharged from jail, but his liability to pay the judgment shall not be thereby affected.
2. Where security is given and default is made in any payment the court shall cite the parties bound by the security requir ing them to show cause why judgment should not be given against them and execution issued thereon. If the amount due and unpaid shall not be paid before the return day of the citation, and no cause be shown to the contrary, judgment shall be rendered against those served with the citation for the amount due and unpaid together with costs, and execution shall issue therefor, saving all remedies upon the bond for future default. The judg ment is a lien on real estate and in other respects enforceable the same as other judgments. The amount collected on such judgment or such sums as may have been deposited as collateral, in lieu of bond when forfeited, may be used for the benefit of the mother or child, as provided for in the order of filiation.
§ 130. Contempt process. The court also has power, on default as aforesaid, to adjudge the father in contempt and to order him committed to jail in the same manner and with the same powers as in case of commitment for default in giving security. The commitment of the father shall not operate to stay execution upon the judgment of the bond.
§ 131. Continuing jurisdiction. The court shall have continuing jurisdiction over proceedings brought to compel support and education and to increase or decrease the amount fixed by the order of filiation, until the judgment of the court has been completely satisfied.
§ 132. Support by mother. 1. If a mother of a child born out of wedlock be possessed of property and shall fail to support and educate her child, the court having jurisdiction, on the application of the guardian or next friend of the child or, if the child shall be chargeable or likely to become chargeable, of the officers mentioned in section one hundred and twenty-two, may examine into the matter and after a hearing may make an order charging the mother with the payment of money weekly or otherwise for the support and education of the child.
2. The court may require the mother to give security, by bond, with sufficient sureties approved by the court, for the payment of the order. In default of such security, when required, the court may commit her to jail, or put her on probation. At any time within one year she may be discharged from jail, but her liability to pay the judgment shall not be thereby affected.
3. Nothing in this section shall be deemed to relieve the father from liability for support and education of the child in accordance with the provisions of this article.
§ 133. False declaration of identity. The making of a false complaint as to the identity of the father, or the aiding or abetting therein, is punishable as for perjury.
§ 134. Probation. Upon a failure to give security as provided in section one hundred and twenty-nine or section one hundred and thirty-two, the court, instead of imposing sentence or of committing the father or mother to jail, or as a condition of his or her release from jail, may place him or her on probation, upon such terms as to payment of support to or on behalf of the mother or child, and as to personal reports, as the court may direct. Upon violation of the terms imposed, the court may proceed to impose the sentence and commit or recommit to jail in accordance with the sentence.
§ 135. Jurisdiction. Jurisdiction over proceedings to compel support is vested in the courts enumerated in section one hundred and twenty-two, paragraph three. It is not a bar to the jurisdiction of the court that the complaining mother or child resides in another county or state, if the defendant be a resident of this state. § 136. Appeals. An appeal in all cases may be taken from any final order or judgment of any court having jurisdiction of filiation proceedings, as provided for in this article, to the appellate division of the supreme court of the respective department within thirty days after the entry of said order or judgBut a defendant who has executed an undertaking to obey an order of filiation, as provided in section one hundred and twenty-nine, shall not appeal from any other part of said order than that which fixes the sum to be paid weekly or otherwise. No appeal, however, shall affect the security required to be given pursuant to section one hundred and twenty-nine. If any such appeal shall be taken by a guardian ad litem, appointed for the child by the court, the court may in its discretion grant an order to audit and may allow payment, for the actual disbursements made by the said guardian ad litem for printing the papers nee

essary for taking the appeal. In appeals in cases of filiation, a printed case on appeal or a printed brief shall not be required. When allowed by the judge and duly audited, said disbursements shall become a county charge and shall be paid by the county.
§ 137. Prosecuting official. It shall be the duty of the county attorney, or the attorney designated by the board of supervisors, or the corporation counsel of a city, in the county, city or town in which the complaint is made to prosecute either in person or by an assistant all cases relating to children born out of wedlock where the complainant is a poor law official.
§ 138. General provisions.

§ 139. Construction. All provisions of the penal law or of the code of criminal procedure or other statutes inconsistent with or repugnant to the provisions of this article shall be considered inapplicable to the cases arising under this article.
§ 2. Title five of part six and paragraphs three and four of section thirty-nine of chapter two of title five of part one of chapter four hundred and forty-two of the laws of eighteen hun5 dred and eighty-one and section one hundred and eighty-five of article fifteen of chapter fifty-five of the laws of nineteen hundred and nine are hereby repealed.
