Haverhill, MA asked in Criminal Law for Massachusetts

Q: I was just released after serving 6 months.. Before I was arrested for that I owed a different court 350 bucks.

Today I received a straight warrant for not paying the 350. I am on probation but I didn't know how long I had to pay the money. My case worker only said I had till next year but no specific date. I can pay the money right away but will this effect my probation even though this is for something I was arrested for BEFORE I did 6 months for a different charge

A: The question "willl this effect my probation even though this is for something I was arrested for BEFORE I did 6 months for a different charge" is something that, in my experience, only an attorney who practices in that court and before those judges can answer. I highly recommend seeing a lawyer.
