Added additional checks to block the 'DNA Fee Due‘ indicator for cases that have not been adjudicated and charges that have been dismissed, withdrawn, or waiting for an ACD. Added the option to issue receipt numbers on bail poundage and bail forfeit bail applied cases in courts that DO NOT have a separate bail account and are running the secure version of the program.

You can now send automatic backups every day Set a delay on the Edit Judge screen indicating the number of days until the scoff takes effect on cases sent to DMV as Fail to Pay or Fail To Appear. Most courts use 37+ days. Set between 1 - 99. Turn delay off by setting to -1 Program calculates the number of days from the DMV report date. At that time the red FEES DUE shows on the case information screen. YOU MUST STAY CURRENT WITH YOUR ERROR REPORT! Corrected the scoff delay timer so it counts from the first business day after a scoff is posted to DMV instead of counting from the day posted. This should fix the problem of defendants who wait until the very last day to pay and the DMV Scoff letter indicates the scoff lift fee is added at 12:01AM on the following day. Not limited to using an action code containing the word “SCOFFLAWED” to trigger the fees due, can use any action codes OLD with Scofflawed Action Code New with any action code You don’t have to calculate the days until the SLF takes affect- program does that for you Edit Judge data and set Scoff Fee Delay for each judge Update Letterhead #5 (auto update).
