Peter N. Munsing's answer If you have insurance, you are hopefully protected. If you don't, then you need to get a consultation from an attorney in your area who handles bankruptcies, which would be a protection for you.

Gary Johnston Dean's answer He should immediately consult an experienced criminal Law Attorney, in the area of his arrest, for help with this problem.

Josh Davis' answer That’s terrible advice. Apply for a court appointed or try to find a lawyer who will take a payment plan. You want to avoid a conviction and just paying a fine will result in a conviction.
