I will leave out the emotion and just deal with facts. In 2007 I failed to perform contract, case went to court in 2009
I was a contractor, failed to perform a contract (I was 22).
I received PBJ Supervised for 5 years & to pay $5,000 restitution.
Could not afford it, still can't.
I have a VOP 100% cash bail for 5k bench warrant in MD
How can I fix this without going to jail? I cannot afford any money for the restitution right now, I cannot afford an attorney. I'm JUST starting a career in LA to where I may be able to make some payments soon but I can't afford the 5k restitution or a lawyer. I called the PO and he said I would sit in jail if I couldn't pay the bail. What do I do? Should I wait until I get 5k + lawyer fees?I appreciate your help a lot, it is helping me calm down. The contract dispute started in 2006, went to court and received PBJ in 2008. VOP went in 2009. The bond is for cash only (at least that is what it says on the internet). I am supposed to get off probation in 2013. I want to just be done with it but how do I do that without the money? I guess I should call a lawyer; it's just expensive when I am on unemployment because I was laid off in March. There was also no jail time added onto my case. I was given 5 years probation because the judge felt that would be enough time to pay it back. I didn't really mess up anything too badly, it was a home improvement contract that didn't work; it was filed criminal because they thought I did not have an MHIC license but I did and those charges were found not guilty.
