Hey, if you wanted to be able to plead not guilty, you should have been born to wealthier parents. What makes you think you deserved to be treated as equal under the law, peon?

This is what happens when people start saying all taxes are bad - you get ridiculous fees everywhere. The anti-tax tards don't biatch about those, especially when attached to the court system. Everything has to be paid for somehow.

So, I'm curious. Is paying for court costs on a ticket, even if the officer doesn't show up and the charge is dismissed, normal everywhere?

EvilEgg: I didn't read the article, but do you get your money back if you are actually found not guilty?

For a New Englander, you don't seem to understand a lot about Massachusetts

Last year, the court ruled that the fees were justified even if a motorist was found innocent of the ticketed offense.

That's the best part.
