What does it cost to go to court

Court costs… What does it really cost the state to go to court?

There are about 200 fees associated with going to court it seems.
Court & Judge fee about 197.00 X’s 28
Filing fees 190.00 (average) X’s 14
Lab Fees 600.00 per instance X’s 10
Witness 73.00 per day X’s 23
Expert Witness 850.00-2500.00 (700-1000 per day average)X’s 9
Appointment of indigent counsel 500.00
Average cost of Counsel 10,0000.00
Impound fees X’s 6 20.00 per day X’s 205 days 4100.00
Manpower hours for the city 35,000.00
Administrative & copy fees 2700.00
Investigators, 3500.00 (average)

JUDGE FEES 6800.00
FILING FEES 2700.00
LAB FEES 6000.00
WITNESS FEES 14,750.00
EXPERT FEES 7800.00
MY ATTORNEY FEES 14,000.00
IMPOUND FEES 4500.00
CITY ATTORNEY FEES 40,000.00
(COMBINED WITH EMPLOYEES, ADMIN FEES & INVESTIGATORS)

SO THE CITY IS WILLING TO SPEND ALMOST A 100,000.00 ON A MISDEMEANOR??? BRILLIANT. I AM GLAD THE CITIZENS OF THE CITY OF EVERETT HAVE ELECTED SUCH FINE OFFICIALS WHO MAKE SUCH WISE USE OF THEIR MONEY. I AM ALSO GLAD THE CITY HAS SO MUCH MONEY TO THROW AROUND.
