    Answered . Paying the fines and fees is generally a violation of the conditions of probation. You could explain to the judge at the probation violation hearing why you were unable to pay the fees. I am not licensed in Tennessee so this response is for information only not legal advice, but in general, if you pay something you will have an easier time with the judge and with the probation officer than if you pay nothing.
