Default question about inmate accounts and court fees paid through these accounts..

Hi if an inmate has court fees to be paid, when money is sent for his commissary account-does the doc take all the money until the debts/fees are paid off or do they take a percentage each time someone sends money? Thanks

Doc generally takes 50% until fees are paid Unless inmate is in Shock Program (because it goes a lot faster), then they take either all or very nearly all untill all is paid.

If they have more than one surcharge, they take it all. If they only have one surcharge, they take half. At least that's what my boyfriend has told me.
