signed a complaint of theft against a guy for $104. sent a bill for $160, this was including interest rates, and filing fees.when he got the letter from the court, he pooped his pants and sent a check for total of $160. i spent 2 hrs in court, it went as follows....judge calls us both up, he's shaking in his boots. judge says have you discussed this matter between yourselves? i say no, but, i'm willing to withdraw my complaint with the understanding that mr. x will pay court costs for today. judge says, done, i'm sure mr. x will be happy to pay your costs, you are free to leave, so, i left. mr. x's bill, of $104 ended up costing him $225. gentlemen please, for the sake of our very exsistance, DO NOT just turn the other cheek when they don't pay. either pull a paulie on them, or take them to court.
