When a defendant is sentenced, the Court may order the individual to pay
the costs of prosecution, any fines, and/or restitution related to the
case. Several factors may be involved in the determination of the
defendant's Court-ordered fees. Some fines are mandated by law, while
others are determined by the Court. Costs are mandated by law or local
rule. Restitution is determined based on the amount of damage incurred.
The Court has empowered the Adult Probation and Parole Department the authority to enforce the payment of Court-ordered fines, costs, and restitution. Failure of the defendant to meet these financial obligations could result in a bench warrant being issued and incarceration.
