Criminals Ordered to Pay Court Fees After Conviction Now Have an Easier Way to Pay

  Email   Print

The Tennessee Department of Correction has added an automated fee payment system for court-ordered fines, fees and restitution. There is a charge to use the online or telephone payment system, but the vendor isn't charging the state for the service. The criminals will be the ones who pay those so called convenience fees. 

Correction Commissioner Derrick Schofield said the system will free up probation/parole officers to spend more time supervising offenders in communities. He said it will also result in fewer people going back to jail for failing to pay fees. Offenders who want to avoid the convenience fee can still mail in money orders.
