Yes. The Court works with a collection agency on cases that the defendant has been sentenced and/or the case has a standard fine and costs. When the fines and fees are not paid by the due date, the case is sent to a collection agency. After the case is in collections, the court will no longer accept payments on the case. The collection agency charges a fee for collecting the money so you end up paying more than originally required. You may contact the collection agency at the Butler Law website.
