Question: I would like to know where each candidate stands on Sheriff’s executions and auctions. TIA
Answer: I appreciate the question. As part of my past duties as Operation Lieutenant, I supervised the Civil Division and have personally conducted property executions and auctions. Wyoming State statute 1-17-101 outlines enforcement of judgments but here is the reader’s digest version and my stance. Once a judge presiding over a civil matter rules against a debtor, the sheriff or his/her designee (deputy) is commanded by the court to carry out the order. This can take place in several forms, the deputy can remove people on the property or in the residence and turn it over to the owner as defined in the court documents, carry out orders of sale by the court, or in the case of real property in which the court documents or “writ” contains a list of items to be seized, the deputy takes possession of the items and turns them over to the person entitled to them. As long as the court documents are in order, it is my stance to carry out the legal orders of the judge.
