In another case, a taxpayer was charged with the crime of failing to file a tax return by a city in Ohio. She didn't actually owe any taxes (she worked, but had taxes taken out of her check by her employer). Even after she paid the $25.00 late fee, she was still arrested, apparently for failing to pay court costs and for failing to appear at trial. This case is still under investigation.
If you have been arrested in connection with an alleged debt (other than child support or spousal support -- I don't handle those matters), feel free to contact me for a no-cost consultation. In appropriate cases, clients don't have to pay my fees out of pocket.
