NJ Rev Stat § 2B:19-8 (2016) What's This?

2B:19-8 Inability to fulfill financial obligations of sentence; procedure
8. a. At any time after a person has completed the total sentence to a labor assistance program or enforced community service program, the comprehensive enforcement hearing officer may determine that the payor is financially unable to comply with the financial obligations initially imposed by the sentencing court. The comprehensive enforcement hearing officer may then:

(1) Accept the participation in a labor assistance program or enforced community service in lieu of payment of the remaining court ordered financial obligations;

(2) Impose additional hours in a labor assistance program or enforced community service in lieu of payment of the remaining court ordered financial obligations;

(3) Impose a term of imprisonment in lieu of paying the remaining court ordered financial obligations; or

(4) Docket the total amount due as a judgment in the Superior Court.



b. When the comprehensive enforcement hearing officer has exhausted all of the steps enumerated in this section and any additional hours of a labor assistance program or enforced community service or any term of imprisonment have been completed, the person may be terminated from probation supervision and the total amount owed may be removed from probation records and deducted from outstanding and uncollectable amounts owed. These actions notwithstanding, whenever a judgment is docketed in the Superior Court, the person remains liable to pay the outstanding debt as originally imposed by the sentencing court.

c. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the comprehensive enforcement hearing officer may not relieve the person of the obligation to pay the VCCB assessment or restitution to a victim.
