    Thumbs up to McCormick County’s Department of Probation, Parole and Pardon Services for cracking down on offenders who owe money to victims and are delinquent in paying fines and court costs. While we certainly can and do sympathize particularly with the victims who are owed restitution, which does not typically result in a victim recouping all he has lost, we also see the need in collecting fines and other court fees because those missing funds simply drive up the costs for the non-offenders in the county. It is a vicious cycle. The criminal commits a crime and there is an associated cost. That cost multiplies when the criminal does not comply with the first court order. It is a shame it takes so much effort to collect, but it does. Read More...
