Ok waiting
Criminal Lawyer: Zoey_ JD, JustAnswer Criminal Law Mentor replied 11 months ago

Yes, unfortunately. This is done all the time with the balance of restitution payments or child support arrears.

When someone is indigent, payments must be set at an amount that a defendant can reasonably make. That means he frequently finishes his probation with a balance yet unnpaid. The US Supreme Court has held that when a person can't finish paying in time just because he is too poor to be able to do so, the court need not incarcerate him, but can make other arrangements. And so, they extend the term of probation.
