A new way to pay court fines
(2008-07-31)
(WOUB) - Jackson County has created a new way for low-level offenders to pay their court fines by picking up trash along local highways.

Mark Musick is Jackson County's Municipal Court judge.

Musick says the program pays five dollars per hour towards the fines of the participants.

Misty Basham agrees.

Basham was convicted of drunk driving and is helping pay for her crime by picking up trash.

The Jackson County Municipal Court program operates through a partnership with the Ohio Department of Transportation.
