A Court authorized Notice of a proposed settlement in a class action lawsuit.
People sued over Giles County’s misdemeanor probation system. The people who sued said that they were kept on probation with CPS or PSI because they couldn’t pay; that they sacrificed basic needs to pay fees; and were told they would be arrested or kept on probation if they didn’t pay. A Settlement (a legal agreement) has been proposed to help you, and other people who were on misdemeanor probation, get the benefits you deserve under the law. The Settlement benefits only apply to people on misdemeanor probation (not felony probation) and only in Giles County (no other County).
