A. Refusal To Pay Fine Or Costs; Imprisonment: If a defendant, who is financially able, refuses or neglects to pay a fine or costs, or both, payment may be enforced by imprisonment until the same shall be satisfied, at the rate of twenty five dollars ($25.00) per day.
B. Action Upon Inability To Pay: If the defendant is without means to pay the fine or costs, the Municipal Judge may direct the total amount due to be entered upon the court minutes and to be certified to the District Court of the County, where it shall be entered upon the District Court Judgment Docket and shall have the full force and effect of a District Court judgment. Thereupon, the same remedies shall be available for the enforcement of said judgment as are available to any other judgment creditor. (2007 Code § 11-30; amd. 2019 Code)
