§ 4737. Extent against sheriff
When a sheriff does not execute or return an extent nor account to the Treasurer for the sum due thereon within 60 days from the time he or she receives it, the Treasurer shall issue his or her extent against such sheriff directed to the high bailiff of the county where such sheriff resides and the high bailiff shall levy and collect the same of the goods, chattels, or estate of the sheriff as collectors serve their warrants, giving 14 days’ notice of the sale of such goods and chattels. If real estate is taken, he or she shall advertise and sell it in the same manner, and the same time for redemption shall be allowed, as in case of the sale of lands by collectors for the payment of taxes. The high bailiff shall commit such sheriff to jail for want of sufficient goods, chattels, or estate.
