Starting Sunday a New Law will Increase Fines & Jail Time
Starting Sunday People with outstanding court related taxes and fees could see their drivers’ license affected. A law going into effect July first will have Court Clerk’s across the state forwarding delinquent case information to the Department of Safety in Nashville, who will suspend driving privileges until all fees are paid. The law applies to anyone who was assessed court costs and fines on or after July first of 2011. Partial payments may not be enough to avoid license suspension once this law is implemented. Defendants with extreme hardship relating to travel for work or an illness can obtain a one-time six-month reprieve from the suspension after getting approval from a judge. Department of Safety finance officials are expected to provide more clarification this week. Scrap metal businesses must now register each location as apposed to dealers registering one time for all locations. The law increases fines and jail time for second and third convictions of domestic assault. On Sunday penalties will increase for certain offenders charged with carrying a firearm. Penalties will also increase for manufacturing, delivery, sale or possession of an imitation controlled substance. (bg)
