2713.18 Extent of sheriff's liability.

The return of "not found" upon an execution against the body of the defendant is necessary to fix the liability of the sheriff as bail, which liability shall be the amount of the judgment, interest, and costs. This liability can be enforced only in a separate action against the sheriff, or against him and his sureties on his official bond, as in other cases of delinquency.
