People need to take responsibility for checking their credit periodically, it's free, and they need to pay their bills. I do not agree with sending someone to jail though, but some people are just irresponsible regarding their finances.

One thing our state does which I DISAGREE with is a lot of the county jails charge inmates for their stay, so potentially you could be in jail for a couple of months and owe several THOUSAND dollars, then you come out and owe them if you don't stay up on your fines and costs they issue a warrant and pick you up. It's a vicious circle. Oklahoma is the 2nd leading state in incarceration rates.

The Oklahoma Department of Corrections has a long wait time for inmates to get to a state facility once convicted. So you could be in a county jail for possibly 2 years before getting to a state facility, racking up daily charges while waiting to be transferred. So say in inmate serves 5 years, he gets discharged, not only does he owes fines and costs and restitution to the town/county his charges were in, he also owes $7000 for his/her stay in county jail. Plus pay to be on probation, pay to have an ankle monitor if they have one, etc. It's a racket.

I work with a lot of former inmates in my job and I also do volunteer work with inmates. The odds are stacked against them for being thrown back in jail for not being able to pay fines. Even when they are trying really hard.
