Our state's system for collecting court-imposed fees, fines, and restitution is broken. It imposes crushing debts on poor people and their debts accrue at 12 percent annual interest, even when incarcerated. Those who cannot afford to pay are sometimes locked up, creating modern-day debtors' prisons. Furthermore, many courts take their share of any payments before crime victims receive any restitution. Tell your legislator to reform this unfair system.
