Letter: Don't want a fine? Don't do the crime

June 12, 2014 

In response to Lora Rathbone's concerns about court fines (Letters, June 9), I have a solution: Don't break the law.

No one forces people to commit crimes. Stay out of trouble and you don't get fined, and therefore, you stay out of jail. Pretty simple, and my answer didn't require a study.
