State Study Calls For Collection Of Unpaid Fines, Fees

California’s Legislative Analyst’s Office is calling for new procedures to collect what it says is about $10.2 billion in unpaid fines, fees and “court-ordered debts.” You may recall that Los Angeles County counsel Lloyd Pellman raised this issue years ago, and the state LAO recommendations echo his. The idea is to give incentives, like a 25 percent commission, to courts that collect money.
