It won't be turned over to civil but it is part of your probation to pay the restitution and they will extend it until it is paid. I would ask the court to waive any additional probation fees though.

Q: Are courts being more lenient on jail sentences with Covid? Hoping to get house arrest instead of jail time?
Sean Maye
Sean Maye answered on Nov 30, 2020

It depends on the facts of the case, your criminal history and the DA's and victims' positions on jail time. Generally, in the beginning of the pandemic, courts were leaning away from jail sentences and were letting a lot of people out of jail on already-imposed sentences. Now, though,... Read more »

First I am not a Tennessee lawyer. That being said, generally a party (civil or criminal) has 30 days to note an appeal, with the bond accompanying that. That's 30 days after sentencing date, whether your lawyer notes the appeal or you do. But I think that an appeal in a criminal case does not... Read more »

You need an attorney. But the case will likely be tried before a jury as is the defendant's right unless waived. Without knowing the actual charge, the facts of the case, and all other factors that go into a defense, no one on a forum will be able to provide you with an answer as to how you... Read more »

Someone was arrested for criminal trespassing in two different counties, one bond was $2500 in one county & the other bond was $5000 in the other county, I'm trying to find out the price range for this charge

Anthony M. Avery
Anthony M. Avery answered on Jun 20, 2019

Maybe General Sessions Judges and Magistrates talk among themselves, but you are not going to find an official guideline to Bond amounts. Both of those are higher bonds than most, so apparently the Defendant is viewed as a major burglar. His lawyer might move to lower the amounts in each County,... Read more »
