Your daughter should go to court and ask the judge if she can do a payment plan or do community service in lieu of fines. Good luck.


1. Make sure your daughter goes to court on the day when her payments were due. That is the day she can explain to the judge why she has not paid.
2. When she talks to the judge, or better still, when she calls the County Attorney's office tomorrow, she can ask about doing community service instead of paying the fines and costs. There is such a program in Jefferson County and defendants are credited for $5 for every hour worked at one of the "approved" community service locations. Bullitt County should also have such a program.
