Can courts enforce payment of a Judgment? Posted on April 03, 2011
In 1994 I had a State Tax Judgment filed against me for Texas State sales tax. It is still unpaid. In 2006 I was charged with forgery of a gov. financial document, and have served 5 years of a 10 year probated sentence. I am now asking for early release, but the judge has found out I still owe the state on the judgment. My obligations on the felony have all been met and current. The judge does not want to release me unless she is sure I pay off the judgment, and has instructed my probation officer of this. Is this proper conduct for a Judge? Do ALL persons on probation have to pay off old debts before they can be released from probation? Has this Judge found a way to legalize extortion? Please help.
