 Alternative Payment Options
Community Service
If you are unable to pay your fines, you may request for community service in lieu of paying the fine. Contact the court to sign up for a court date. 
In certain situations, in which a person cannot perform community service and that person is financially unable (Indigent) to pay their fine and court cost the Court will hear sworn testimony and look at evidence concerning your financial situation. You may do this by requesting a court date and setting an appearance before the Judge. 
Credit for Time Served
You may be entitled to a credit toward any fine or costs owed if you were confined in jail or prison after the commission of the offense. You may request this by submitting a letter to the court along with proof of your incarceration (book in date and release date) from the facility where you were confined.  Contact the Court via email or phone for additional information.
