Default Monthly fees while in jail

My husband has been held in county jail for over 3 years, was waiting to be tried on charges for a crime he never committed, well it is finally at the end and the slow moving wheels of justice have figured out he did not commit this crime and it is now likely the case is going to be dismissed all together, at which point my husband (who is on parole) will meet with his parole officer and go through the revocation process, we are expecting him to be set free, but our question is this, will he have to catch up payments to the parole office of the $10 per month fee they charge, even though he was in jail for 38 months?

If he is continued on supervision, then yes, the fees are due and payable since a continue supervision decision has the net effect of treating his parole supervision just as if he had been on the street the entire period of time.

I see what your saying, but he did not have the BENEFIT of being on the street, he was sitting in county jail, not working, not able to pay, so as soon as he steps out he owes $380.00? That just screams WRONG to me. Thank you for your insight, I don't mean to bite the messenger, I'm just frustrated with all that has gone on.

Your saving grace is it won't be due in one lump sum...

And, paying the $380 beats the hell out of the alternative...let's face it, being continued on supervision means he would keep all the time instead of potentially losing it as could occur through revocation.
