Mary, not even Bouvier's Law Dictionary has this one!  However, a "capias"
was a "writ." Bouvier (his 1856 edition is online at
http://www.constitution.org/bouv/bouvier_c.htm) explains a half-dozen
different types of capias/writs but not this one.
 
Ad, of course, means "to"; but expono has several meanings that essentially
boil down to "put forth" or "explain."

I found this term in a court record and its definition was not in my 7th
edition of Black's Law Dictionary.  Capias means "that you take," but what
does the rest mean?
