A fine is a criminal judgment so it is not a civil judgment. You must be talking about a charge that may be related to a criminal case but not part of the sentence (not really a fine). For example, a cost that you must pay the court or a victim but it is not as part of the punishment for the crime. If not part of the sentence then it should be dischargeable in bankruptcy. Fines and restitution as a condition of probation are not dischargeable.
