2715.10 Property may be delivered to persons with whom found.

The levying officer shall deliver the property attached under section 2715.09 of the Revised Code to the person in whose possession it was found, upon the person's executing a bond to the plaintiff, with sufficient surety, to the effect that the parties to it are bound in the same amount as the bond filed by the plaintiff under section 2715.044 of the Revised Code, or if the plaintiff has not filed such a bond, in double the appraised value of the property, and to the effect that the property or its appraised value in money will be forthcoming to answer the judgment of the court in the action. If it appears to the court that any part of such property has been lost or destroyed by unavoidable accident, the appraised value of the property shall be remitted to the plaintiff if judgment is rendered in his favor.

If the person is indigent, the court may, upon motion of the person or upon its own motion, waive the bond required by this section or set bond in a lower amount, as fairness requires.
