Credit for Time Served is when a Judge gives a defendant who was in or is in jail, credit on their citation(s).
Time served is not given automatically when released from jail; a Judge must approve it. You have to make the request for each citation and provide proof with each Court where you have outstanding warrants.
The judgment and sentence for the offense you are charged is the payment of a fine and cost. If ordered to pay a fine and cost, and you cannot pay, notify the court immediately. If you are determined by the court to have insufficient resources or income to pay, the court is required to provide you other ways to discharge the fine and cost.
