Law by Law, Fines After Jail

If a prisoner has been in jail for 90 days or longer, he probably emerges without a job - and if his crime is a felony, he's going to have a hard time finding another one. Why add costs and fines into the mix - unless you really want him to go back to jail. There should be no costs or fines after jail, and if parole is involved, it must be free. Drug tests, classes, supervision - all covered. Sadly, nobody does this. I don't know of one state that I can even elevate from red to pink.
