JAIL TIME? Sarasota Judge says those who owe need to pay or else!!

Posted March 8th, 2010 by srq_hiker

SARASOTA COUNTY - A local judge has a message for anyone who owes court fines or fees: Pay up immediately or an officer will track you down and take you to jail.

Tired of being ignored by people who owe the court money, County Judge Kimberly Bonner has recruited county law enforcement agencies to actively track down the debtors at home, work or wherever and arrest them.

don't even follow their own rules...

part of the article states: Constitutional law forbids jailing people solely over fees and fines they cannot pay. Court officials say that, technically, they are jailing people because they violated a court order to appear and not because they owe the money.
