Fine

Paying a fine may be required by the court for certain offences regardless of whether a conviction is made or not. The paying capacity of an offender should always be taken into consideration when setting an amount for a fine. The maximum penalty that can be imposed for a specific charge depends on the legislation and the Act that covers the offence. A fine may also be imposed along with another kind of sentence.

It is important to explain to the Court what capacity you have to pay a fine. Especially if you are trying to get a fine instead of receiving a Community Corrections Order, often the issue becomes one of explaining to the Court
that you do not have adequate time to fulfill the conditions of a CCO and, hence, you can best take accountability for the offence by paying the required fine.
