If any sheriff in the state fails to attend, in person or by deputy, the circuit court
or county court of the county, from sickness, death, or other cause, the judge attending
the court may appoint an interim sheriff, who shall assume all the responsibilities,
perform all the duties, and receive the same compensation as if he or she had been
duly appointed sheriff for only the term of nonattendance and no longer.
