§6-3-5. Judgment on motion by officer against deputy and sureties.
Where any deputy of a sheriff or collector shall commit any
default or misconduct in office for which his principal, or the
personal representative of such principal, is liable, for which a
judgment or decree shall be rendered against either, such
principal, or his personal representative, may, on motion, obtain
a judgment against such deputy and his sureties, and their personal
representatives, for the full amount for which such principal, or
his personal representatives, may be so liable, or for which such
judgment or decree may have been rendered. But no judgment shall
be rendered by virtue of this section for money, for which any
other judgment or decree has been previously rendered, against such
deputy or his sureties or their personal representatives.
