19. Trustee convicted of indictable offence
When any person is or shall be jointly or solely seized or possessed of any lands, or entitled to any stock upon any trust, and such person has been or shall be convicted of an indictable offence, it shall be lawful for the said Civil Court, upon proof of such conviction, to appoint any person to be a trustee in the place of such convict, and to make an order for vesting such lands, or the right to transfer such stock and to receive the dividends and income thereof in such person to be so appointed trustee; and such order shall have the same effect as to lands as if the convict trustee had been free from any disability, and had duly executed a conveyance or assignment of his estate and interest in the same.
