Hi all


I wonder if you can help me.


I did something stupid and ended up in Magistrates Court and got fined and told to pay costs and it came to over £1k..


I’ paid some off then got into money troubles so stopped paying.


They (Cheltenham Magistrates Court) ended up handing fine over to Marstons bailiff was quite friendly

and we made an agreement for me to pay,

but then I got into trouble again and ended up being sent to prison for 18 weeks by Walsall Magistrates Court….to serve 9 weeks.


Left me owing £900 to Cheltenham Magistrates.


I got out to find a text from the bailiff asking what was going on and why hadn’t I paid and

a letter from him through my door, with the fine now at £1220.


He then arrived at my door and left me a note after talking to me and me explaining where I was and told me to make arrangements.


I then went for a few job interviews came back to find he’d been again and it was the note saying he will come and take stuff.


I really can’t afford to pay the £900 in one go and am currently on benefits until I find a job.


I did write to Cheltenham Magistrates whilst I was inside asking them to consider that my prison term be classed as time served

but they have apparently refused as I was put in prison by a different court than them.


What can I do to get him off my back if I can’t pay him?


I really don’t want him taking my stuff?


CAn I get the court to take money off my benefits or is that too late?






PS – this is one of two posts I need to make over money problems on different parts of the site so hopefully I won’t confuse you all!!
