Q: I wanted to know what kind of repercussion i can be facing for FAIL TO PAY CT FINANCIAL OBLIGATION. I got pulled over
previously on probation had restitution to pay and due to lack of work and other covid issues within my household i couldnt make payment in time. Then a month ago i was pulled over and given a ticket cause I was unaware there was a suspension due to FAIL TO PAY CT FINANCIAL OBLIGATION. And i want to know what can happen when I go to court for the ticket
If its a criminal infraction (DWLS with knowledge) and you are on probation, then it will count as a violation of your probation.
If it is not a criminal infraction (DWLS without knowledge) then it is not a crime and can't violate your probation and you can't get any jail time for it.
You should contact a traffic ticket or criminal defense attorney (if its criminal) and do what you need to do to fix your license.
