"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.

The New York Times recently shined the spotlight on the issue of judges routinely jailing people to make them pay fines even when they have no money to pay. Minor offenders who cannot pay a fine or fee often find themselves in jail cells. And felony offenders who have completed their prison sentences are often sent back to jail when they cannot pay fines and fees they owe because they could not earn money while locked up. As our friend Lisa W. Borden, pro bono partner at Baker, Donelson, Bearman, Caldwell & Berkowitz, PC†, who has worked on the issue, told The Times:
