Should my son still have to pay probation and fines if he is in jail for the rest of the year?

Asked about 1 year ago - Sierra Vista, AZ

His violation was being out of place. He was on Intensive probation supervision. Now they put him in jail and he has lost his job and home. He will have no way to pay anything much less a place to live. They are still charging him $97 a month plus his fines. Can he appeal this to have it all reduced and if so what form will he need?

    Answered . Typically the court orders the defendant to begin the payments after he is released from jail. Take a look at the sentencing order and see if there is a start date for the payments to begin after he is out.
