Good morning. Would you mind sharing with me the basis for which the fine imposed needs to be removed? Was this a situation when you were unable to respond to the citation as a result of being incarcerated?

Both of those are criminal offenses and would have needed to go before a Judge, to resolve. Are you saying that the Judge did impose the fines and court costs and she now can not pay as a result of being in jail? I am just trying to figure out why the money needs to be removed.
