How about if you make a mistake you have to take forced vacation time from being a judge? With no pay?
One judge`s mistake makes us a police state?
Lady made a mistake.Lady gets ticket.Lady can`t pay ticket.Lady goes to jail.
Unless Lady didn`t know she would have to pay at the trial, there`s nothing wrong with this. If you can`t pay a ticket, you`re held for a few days. The end. What am I missing?
Which is where the judge probably messed up... The laws vary from state to state, and how a judge chooses to use or not use the power granted to them by the law will vary greatly also.
All courts offer payment plans? Yeah I suppose.. You pay or you end up in jail - if you call that a `plan`.
In checking Georgia law, I found two interesting things:"15-21-1. Time of payment of fines Every fine imposed by a court under the authority of this Code shall be paid immediately or within such reasonable time as the court may grant."
In other words if the judge wants it now, the judge gets it now, or you suffer some sort of consequences.
Best name of the day!
is it because of HOV-A??!
If you get a parking ticket, and don`t pay the fine, a bench warrant will be issued and you will be arrested for failure to pay. You haven`t been `sentenced to jail` for a parking ticket....
