This has been going on for a long time! And I suspect all over the country , or I assumed it was the same.
They (the courts) hide behind a technicality, they do not jail you for being poor, but for “contempt of court”
So if your late on payments, or simply cant pay the amount due , a warrant is issued, which last time I had one was an additional $40, then you show
up they cancel the warrant, you have to see the judge, which then additional court costs are added on to the original fines! Or they put you in jail
with the original debt being owed plus all the new fee’s.
I have plenty of good stories to share on this same matter, but Ill pass for now, I really hope this gets some attention and fixed, same with jailing
and removing drivers licenses for child support, which can net you prison time.
It’s all corrupt to me!
