They charge you for fingerprinting you at the sheriff's office? That just seems wrong.

LOL.... they charge you for  everything bro.  The myth of jail being free room and board is just that... a myth.  You arent getting out of the situation without paying thousands and thousands of dollars to different people.  They like doing things like giving people who werent arrested on drug charges mandatory drug testing, so you have to pay hundreds of dollars for clean tests... while at the same time  not giving drug addicts testing, because then they'd have to put you back in jail when you fail.

I knew a guy once who got a DUI 4 hours away from where he lived.  The arresting county refused to transfer his probation, because then they wouldnt get the money anymore... it would go to his new probation officer.  So now, without a license (DUI, remember?), he had to find a way to travel 4 hours to show up to his probation office so he could pay his fees every two weeks.  He filed hardship paperwork etc.. denied denied denied.

Its all about the $$$$$$$$$$

To be fair, that guy is a piece of shiat. How about not driving drunk and endangering the very lives of other motorists? You know, in accordance with established and well-recognized law.

But I have to get home and watch Monday Night Raw...it doesn't matter how drunk I am....derrrrrrp.

That "guy" should just be put in the ground. There is no way he is anything but a cancer on society, and you know it.

It seems like a lot of risk for $16.

$16 is cheap.  I had to pay $80 to get finger printed by the USCIS when I applied for my green card and I'll have to pay another $80 when I apply for my citizenship.  Fingerprints are only good for two year according to the government.

That's ridiculous.  You should be able to get a fingerprint card from your local police for a lot less than $80.

Hell yea. When my ex was arrested he was billed for his overnight stay. So in addition to the "free" public defender, he was billed for room and board in the county jail. I don't remember the breakdown because I refused to pay it (not to the county, to him). It was figured in with his bail release.

Well.. he was arrested in a parking lot tailgate party at a sporting event for sitting in a running vehicle with an open container, not actually driving drunk.  Still.. quite the dumbass. *shrug*.

Doesnt mean they didnt put him through some sleezy shiat for money though.  I'm sure he would have had to do the same exact thing regardless of what charges he was actually arrested for.

The one night I spent in jail there was a $30 "booking fee" that I got back after my case was dismissed.  They took it out of the cash in my wallet.

Pretty much. They'll toss you back in for failure to pay, which runs up your bill eve more. You'll also have a hell of a time finding a job while you're in jail, so good luck ever paying it off in full.

Applying for green cards and citizenship is a benefit you are requesting.  (My wife is going through USCIS process as well).  Admittedly getting arrested is 'voluntary' as well, but it isn't a requested benefit.

Yeah cause your fingerprints change many times over the course of your life.

every single person who owes a dime to the court system should simply not pay. It wont work if a few people do it.
but if everyone does it then shiat would change real quick.

I paid $5 at my local sheriff's dept to get fingerprinted for my CCW and FFL. Had to bring my own fingerprint cards though.

I knew one guy who couldn't pay for his various crap that landed him in jail. He was credited like $30/day until his stuff was paid off.  So we're paying $80/day to house him, he's getting a $30 credit.  I'm sure that extra $50 per day discrepancy went to a good cause.

While I agree two years is a little short for a time period, they don't recheck them because your fingerprints change, they check them again because they do not change.

Fingerprints to get a concealed carry permit in GA cost 5 bucks. I got mine for free from the USAF! They got 27 years of my life in return!

I actually have a CCP but rarely carry unless I am on a long road trip unaccompanied and even then I will have BIG dogs with me, which pussy criminals are fearful of. I don't live in fear.

Kansas, $35 for fingerprints, 100 bucks to the Attorney General plus cost of classes.  Good for 6 years I think.  Couldn't swear to that.

Actually, upon reflection, it could vary from county to county in GA. Don't know without research I am unwilling to do right now. Just recall it was a lot less than renewing my notary commission cost.

I went through the CCP (WCL, properly) process in Gwinnett recently. The fingerprint fee was $10
More than reasonable reasonable compared to several other fees for similar services. What's a passport up to, $165?

God, I hope passport cost isn't that much. My passport is 10 yrs old and I planned on getting a new one for an international trip in January of '14. I would think that is a federally mandated charge rather than a local one. Still, $165 is obscene to me. I don't even remember what mine was when I first got it.....$50 maybe. Seemed pricey at the time but hey, I have saw a lot of the world on that $50 so I guess it was money well spent.

If I had to hazard a guess, it's because they are not taken then tossed in a pile. Someone enters them into a database, which takes time, which costs money.

Except that they're not. I've been fingerprinted eleventy million times in the state of California--every time I volunteer for an agency that requires me to work in the courts or with disabled people; PLUS when I applied for the bar, PLUS when I took the bar exam (different fingerprinting), PLUS when I worked for Disney, PLUS--what it is is a scam by LiveScan that gets a cut every time they do the printing. Always in-state, so it's not like if they were on file somewhere someone couldn't just pull them and make a copy. And I've still got the same fingers I've had since 1986 when I was printed the first time (when I was arrested) or 1991 (when I was printed for the Sheriff's office).

It's just for the $$$. That's all.
