Fees are Court-ordered and include a Fine, Court Costs, and Probation Supervision fees. Depending on particular cases, Courts may add other fees such as Court-appointed Attorney fees, CrimeStopper fees, Assessment fees, and Restitution, which is repaying victims for what was lost or damaged. Probationers required to submit to drug or alcohol tests will be required to pay a $10 co-payment for each drug testing event.
Probationers have payment options to assure their Court-assessed fees are current and up-to-date.
