Not Guilty? The McLennan County Government Still Wants You to Pay

Flashing lights come on behind you. The appear to be police lights, but you aren't certain. You are on a stretch of road so dark that you don't feel comfortable pulling over right away. You continue to drive slowly, about 18 mph, until you pull up to a well lit corner and stop. Instead of the speeding ticket you were going to receive, you now get arrested for evading arrest in a vehicle (And if you don't think this is happening, check it out. It's public record).

How McLennan County's sentencing policy wastes your tax dollars

When it comes to punishing non-violent misdemeanor offenders, our county has a few different options. We can put people in jail. This of course, costs us money. McLennan County taxpayers shell out about $55 per day, per inmate currently. Another option is to place a person on probation. People on probation generally pay fines and fees, but those moneys are in large part going to pay for actual costs incurred by a probation department...labor, programs, classes, etc. Still another option is fines. Yep, fines. Money coming into the county.
