Financial Consequences of Conviction Chart
Authored By: The Feerick Center for Social Justice at Fordham Law School
This chart provides a summary of the financial consequences that people who are convicted of crimes may face as a result of that conviction. Some convictions have fines, fees and surcharges. Sometimes restitution is ordered. If these debts are not paid, they can get bigger, become difficult to pay off, and affect a person's credit report. This chart contains information about the range of fines, fees and surcharges allowed by law as well as ways to have the amount reduced or waived. It also includes information regarding the consequences of non-payment of restitution and child support.
