Sounds fair to me. Why didn't she just pay her fines? How about the victims of the accident she caused that are out of pocket waiting for restitution? Fuck her.

Worse, she was driving without insurance.

I don't have insurance right now either. So I fucking walk.

Feel bad for her medical troubles and someone needs to teach her to dumb down her resume but still... If you aren't insured, don't drive. Or if you do drive, be really extra fucking careful not to get into accidents.

However, she really shouldn't be in jail for such a small amount.

Either there is more to the story that isn't being told in the article (it IS Huffpo) or it's way over the top. A person should always be given leeway if they make honest, timely attempts to explain their situation and are doing the best they can.

The punishment should fit the crime, so to speak.

Re: Debtors' Prison: Jobless Woman Jailed For Unpaid Traffic Fines
I recently got a citation for single driver in the HOV lane and since paying the ticket was over 340.00, I decided to do a defensive driving course.

I went down to pay the 110. fine and was given paperwork to fill out which required I list:
*Income and income source
*Rent or mortgage payment
*mortgage amount and to whom owed
*Monthly expenses
*credit card debt and payments
*any gov't. assistance
*any alimony or child support
*(2) persons who could be immediately reached who would vouch for me - the clerk called them as I stood there.

This was to sign up for defensive driving, folks. I'm a 53yo woman with no criminal history and a good driving record.

This is in Dallas County, Texas.

The government didn't get the money and they had to pay to house, feed and protect this person. What a good way to spend taxpayers money.

There has to be some sort of consequences to her actions. You think that it is going to far by giving her some sort of punishment for not paying the fine? If there were no consequences for paying the ticket or restitution then people would simply choose not to pay.

I agree, she thinks she is above flipping burgers or stocking a shelf until she can get a better job... She is the typical American Witch... It's sad that more and more this is the MAJORITY single woman's attitude.. They call it being independent ..

Re: Debtors' Prison: Jobless Woman Jailed For Unpaid Traffic Fines
These kinds of cases go to a minimum security at a county jail and are usually put on the work program. A certain amount of money will be credited to her debt for each day of work. I would hardly call it "debtor's prison".

The jobs consist of things like cooking jail meals, cleaning jail (floors, waiting room), maintenance of grounds, painting jail and other needed building maintenance jobs, washing county cars, and also outside jobs for other county departments and jobs for non-profit groups.

Our local jail here is like club med in minimum security - work-out facilities, t.v., pool tables.

It might be a good thing for her in that the debt will be paid off.

Haha! And hopefully she'll learn a new job skill in jail. This "debtor's prison" b.s. isn't a new thing.

Actually, it's fairly common for them to pay off fines like this.

I think anyone getting welfare should be required to work too, cut my grass, clean out the gutters...ya know things I have trouble finding time for because I'm working...hell, my kids argue over who gets to do those things so they can earn some spending money...I don't give allowance, I'm not the government...
