As a part of sentencing, I got "DEFENDANT IS ORDERED TO PAY A $150.00 PROBATION REVOCATION FINE PURSUANT TO SECTION 1202.44 OF THE PENAL CODE, STAYED PENDING SUCCESSFUL COMPLETION OF PROBATION". Thi s seems to be little technical and i want to understand when exactly i need to make this payment. I called the court and payed the amount I owe for the case fines. But, this was not part of it and i only realized i need to pay this after the initial payment.
Everyone convicted has to pay a State Restitution Fund amount - it's $150 on a misdemeanor committed in 2014. There is a second $150 for the Probation Revocation Fine, but it is stayed (aka put on hold) pending successful completion of probation. If you never violate, you never pay that second $150. If there is a probation violation, the court can impose that second $150 at the time.
That's why it wasn't included in the original total due.
The above answer is for general information only and is based on the information you posted. Every case is fact dependent, so to get a thorough analysis of your situation, you will need to consult face to face with an attorney licensed to practice in the jurisdiction where the incident took place. Do not conclusively rely on any information posted online when deciding what to do about your case.
"Stayed" means that the revocation fine is not owed unless you violate your probation. If you successfully fulfill all provisions of your probation you will never have to pay that fine.
The probation revocation fine is only due if probation is revoked because of a probation violation. If you have no probation violation and successfully complete probation, there is nothing to pay. That is why the sum was not in the amounts due at the time of sentencing.
You don't be a stayed fine. If you successfully complete probation, you will never pay it. What a great incentive to do right!
