He needs to go in with an attorney and have them quash the warrants and work out a payment plan.
Feel free to contact my office with any questions, I am unclear about the entire situation. How many bench warrants does he have.
His best chance is to hire an attorney to appear in court and explain the situation. The more money he can put towards the full fees and fines will also be very beneficial.
The clerk's office won't accept payments on a case that has gone to warrant. The warrant will have to be recalled by the judge before anything else can be done on the case.
Your friend can consult with a local attorney to discuss getting the warrant recalled (hopefully without your friend ever having to appear in court) and getting back on a payment plan he can stick with - or converting the fine to community service if possible.
