— Lawrence County’s sheriff says he’s making a push to collect as much as he can of the $500,000 in unpaid fines owed by felons.

Sheriff Dan Ellison says his department has installed a computer program that tracks felons whose fines are in default. If the felons don’t pay, Ellison says, they could go back to jail.

Ellison says he plans to make public lists of those who owe money, so that those who want to pay the fines before a warrant is issued for their arrest can do so.

He says that it’s likely some people who have outstanding fines are already in jail or have died.
