Lisa Borden, an attorney ..., 17 June 2015 [cached]
Lisa Borden, an attorney with Baker, Donelson, Bearman, Caldwell & Berkowitz, said it only lawful to put someone in prison if they refuse to pay a fine, not if they are unable.
Calls to JCS and attorneys representing the City of Clanton were not immediately returned.
Borden said she has dealt with hundreds of people who have faced large fines and jail time.
She said cash-strapped city councils are pressuring municipal courts to bring in additional revenue.
"The thing to me that's so completely wrongheaded is that causing someone to be unable to drive and to be unable to go to work is not a very effective way to help them to be able to pay," she said.

"Alabama courts have turned justice on its head by handing poor people who can't afford to pay a fine over to private probation companies, where even more fees are added to the already unaffordable debt," said Lisa Borden, the pro bono partner at Birmingham's Baker Donelson law firm.
For instance, one Alabamian's $179 speeding ticket mushroomed into $1500 worth of fines. After this woman failed to pay the fines, the city jailed her on three occasions for a total of 40 days of jail time. Afterwards, she owed $3,170 to the private company.
Borden, who advocates on behalf of low-income clients, said, "Even those avoiding jail sentences can suffer dramatic consequences, losing jobs and homes as a result of suspended driver's licenses and unjust arrest warrants."
"Fortunately, the tide may be turning," Borden says.
