387.10 POWERS AFTER EXPIRATION OF TERM.
Every sheriff going out of office by expiration of a term may execute and return all writs,
processes, and orders which shall then be on hand, and which the sheriff shall have begun to
execute by service, levy, or collection of money thereon. If such sheriff dies, or from any cause is
unable to act, the sheriff in office, upon receipt of any such writ, process, or order, together with
the return or memorandum of the action, if any, of such late sheriff under the same, shall complete
the execution thereof in the same manner and with like effect as if the same had been originally
delivered to the successor and the return of such succeeding sheriff upon any such process or
order or sheriff's deed given in pursuance of the execution thereof shall be prima facie evidence of
the disability of the late sheriff to complete the execution of such process or give such deed.
