I got caught stealing, went to jail. Got out went to a few court dates for it. Finally i was charged and told i could pay it off w work crew however i stupidly never signed up. Awhile ago my gma told mw i got mail. It said it was my last final notice for my fine. I asked my family members if they sent me anything before that final notice and they said no. Yesterday i got mail saying i have a new court date for not paying my fine.
What should i expect and whats going to happen ? Is it too late to pay it now ? I had no way of paying before but recently my boyfriend has gotten a job and is taking care of us. He says he would pay the fine. Could i pay before my court date ?
My court date is in February the 8th in Renton,wa
Do you have an attorney? That is the person that would be familiar with your case and your options. If your choices were pay the fine or do work crew, and you didn’t do work crew but you paid the fine, it would seem like you should be fine. Again, your attorney will know the specifics of your case and be able to tell you what’s likely to happen to you. We can only guess based on the little info we have.
