23A-6-13. Allegations in indictment or information for perjury. In an indictment or information for perjury or subornation of perjury, it is sufficient to set forth the substance of the controversy or matter in which the offense was committed, the court or person before whom the oath alleged to be false was taken, and that the court or person before whom it was taken had authority to administer it, with proper allegations of the falsity of the matter on which the perjury is assigned; but the indictment or information need not set forth the pleadings, record, or proceedings with which the oath is connected, nor the commission or authority of the court or person before whom the perjury was committed.
