When judgment is entered against a defendant, all fees and costs shall be taxed as part of the judgment, unless otherwise provided in this Chapter.

If any private person complainant, in any action before the Municipal Court, requests dismissal of the prosecution of said action, or willfully absents himself from trial or fails to appear at trial after being subpoenaed, and said action is dismissed, the Court shall give judgment against said private person complainant for all applicable fees and costs. In addition, if charges against an accused pursuant to a private person complaint are dismissed, and it appears to the Court there were no reasonable grounds for the complaint, or that it was maliciously made, the Court shall give judgment against said complainant for all applicable fees and costs.
