Sec. 3691. Jury trial of criminal contempts

-STATUTE-

Whenever a contempt charged shall consist in willful disobedience

of any lawful writ, process, order, rule, decree, or command of any

district court of the United States by doing or omitting any act or

thing in violation thereof, and the act or thing done or omitted

also constitutes a criminal offense under any Act of Congress, or

under the laws of any state in which it was done or omitted, the

accused, upon demand therefor, shall be entitled to trial by a

jury, which shall conform as near as may be to the practice in

other criminal cases.

This section shall not apply to contempts committed in the

presence of the court, or so near thereto as to obstruct the

administration of justice, nor to contempts committed in

disobedience of any lawful writ, process, order, rule, decree, or

command entered in any suit or action brought or prosecuted in the

name of, or on behalf of, the United States.
